Amazing views!!! Go early so you can get parking. Started on Long Lake Trail head, continued on Isabel Glacier Trial, and turned around before the VERY steep incline to the top of the Glacier. All in all did about 9.5 miles.

beautiful day hike, get there early as parking fills up fast. The wildflowers are stunningly beautiful. Many photo opportunities. pack a lunch if you're going all the way to the glacier.

Wildflowers are still in abundance. The far side (South side?) of the Long Lake loop is quieter and offers a view of the lake for much of it. Easy trek to Lake Isabelle with plenty of puddles along the path due to recent rains. Bring your camera!

Amazing trail. Lake Isabelle is just beautiful, and the trail is way more interesting than an "easy" rating would suggest. Highly recommend starting at Lake Brainard to add a couple miles round trip and some more elevation.

Beautiful wildflowers! Easy hike with gorgeous view at the lake. Long Lake trailhead parking lot filled up at 5:50am today (Saturday 8/5), so we parked in the main area by Brainard Lake - it added 3/4 mile to the hike each way which wasn't too bad.
