This was a nice trail, although we had patches of snow! We only went 8 miles because I had kids with me and they could only handle getting to the bridge!

This hike was a wild experience. When we made it to the top we could see that the lake was fogged in but hiked down to it hoping it would lift and we could see where the glacier met the lake. On the way down we could see the top of the glacier and the other glaciers in the valley which was amazing. When we got down to the lake we could not see more than twenty feet in front of us but hung out for a while begging the fog to lift. As we were walking around the lake we started to feel a deep rumbling and heard a piece of the glacier fall off into the lake. Being from Montana with little experience around glaciers we had no idea whether a glacier induced tsunami was heading our way or what and headed for high ground haha. Luckily only small waves hit the beach but the experience is something we will never forget. Of course when we were about halfway to the top on our way out the fog began to lift haha. The scenery in and out is worth every step.

First Glacier we had seen and it was beautiful. Glad we decided to check it out. Unfortunately you do have to pay a fee to drive to the trail head which took away from the wildness of the experience.

Only did the 1k loop but it was wide and stroller friendly.

Beautiful Glacier that is easy to hike to. This hike is an eye opening one as it has signs showing how far the glacier has receded per ten years. It was indescribable to stand next to this glacier and hear it moving.

Beautiful!!! Loved getting so close to the actual waterfall!

First stretch is not much fun with direct sun and no views but it is worth every second to take the whole trail! Amazing waterfalls and river views and the scenery at the end makes it all worthwhile. Still quite a bit of snow at the very end of the trail but still passable.

Beautiful scenery and decent hike. The views of the river are limited but what you can see is breathtaking.

This trail is moderate. The payout at the end is spectacular while the power line pass portion is just a means to get you to the hidden lakes trailhead. Muddy in a lot of spots today and a lot of snow still on the ground further back on the trail. Some spots of snow were knee deep if falling through. The lake is still almost completely frozen. Saw mountain goats and arctic ground squirrels and the views were amazing!

Beautiful view! The trail is a little steep and think on the way up to second bench. Overall, I love it.

great climb to the peak... be careful of those loose rocks though!
