Hiked September 2017. This hike was a wildlife bonanza for us - bighorn sheep, 2 moose including a baby and 2 grizzly bears (at a very comfortable distance). The views down the valley were spectacular too!

Easy hike with very little elevation gain. We were hoping to see moose in Bullhead Lake. None were there, but we still had a great time.

We hiked it on a foggy day so you couldn’t see all the tops of the surrounding mountains. Felt like another world as a result! We didn’t see any moose but several hikers on the trail said they had earlier that morning. Just the right amount of people - not nearly as crowded as other popular trails in the park. Very flat, too.

This is a great first hike to do in Glacier as there is not a large increase in elevation. It’s a beautiful hike, great for all ages. You are able to see red rock falls along the way.

We did this trail yesterday (8/3/17) and it was the most incredible experience I had at Glacier. Don't miss the unmarked left fork that takes you down to Redrock Falls just over two miles in, after Redrock Lake. It's an incredible waterfall!

Bullhead Lake itself was amazing and we went a little further down this trail up toward Swiftcurrent Pass. You get some fantastic views of glaciers and waterfalls, and if you brave the uphill the view of Bullhead Lake is not to be missed. The trail is relatively easy (especially if you skip the rise up to Swiftcurrent Pass) but there's so much to see. Take a peek at Fishercap Lake early on or on the way back--we missed seeing a moose because we skipped it!

Hiked 1st week of June, entirely clear of snow to the lake. If this isn't a 5 star hike, I really don't know what is. Pretty flat and numerous photo opportunities.

Lots of snow - some were snowshoeing and that looked easier this time of year!

The swiftcurrent pass trail to Bullhead Lake is a fairly flat (0.1% grade) hike. A great trail to spot Moose. The Redrock Falls are a great midpoint break spot. Great Views, Beautiful Lakes, Waterfalls and Wild Life.
