Very cool buildings. I have attached a bunch of photos. But the loop trail isn't marked! I couldn't find it for the life of me. If you have hints on how to find it please post for everyone else!

Great place to spend a couple hours, lots of history and dog friendly. Even in March it’s a beautiful place to go. Could hear the cracking of the ice on the Yosemite while looking at the caves.

Very hard climbing, make sure you have the right gear

Did not go very far due to a storm coming up but did see a moose from far off!

Quite the slog in the loose snow and on steep terrain. Not much trail to follow so had the chance to make one of our own.

Great weather all day; light breeze on top and the lookout was totally encased in windblown snow and ice. A spectacular sight and the views were incredible.

Don't fast before you go on this adventure...you could end up feeling peeked at the end of the day.

Great hike! The water is very cold, so don’t plan on swimming! Worth the trek!

One of my favorite in glacier national park! I would recommend doing it from Logan’s Pass & working down. The views are amazing, being able to see the whole valley & the vast scenery of the whole park is worth the distance! Nightly recommend!

Such a fun and easy hike. Great for the whole family. Breathtaking views

Incredible trail... backpacked it May 2017...plenty of wildlife, spectacular views, and challenging climbs... highly recommend this Trail.

Snow shoeing this was exhausting! The views at the top were amazing! Lots of wandering as well since you can't really see the trail with all the snow. Can't wait to go back and do it in the summer!

Beautiful hike through the old growth cedars along the creek, ending at a glacial lake with great waterfalls and thick plant life everywhere!

a long yet if your up for the 14 mile hike and XC skiing well worth it hike! amazing views from the start to finish! We thought we would be the only people up there, but there was about 6 other people behind us. make sure to start early, it took us about 12 hours, because of the road being closed 5 miles before the trail!!!

Parking is not available in the winter. Nearest parking is 1.5 miles out from trail and snowshoes would have helped a lot. No one was on the trail and it was gorgeous.

Groomed and lovely hike. We were alone for most of the hike, a first for any of our Yellowstone visits. The thermal features aren't much to see since everything was covered in feet of snow.

Hiked this back in July. Amazing hike with great views as a good length of the trail is along the side of the mountain with the valley and Going to the Sun Rd below. Shuttled up to Logan Pass and then hiked back to the car that way.

There’s a short path a little over half way through that goes up to the Grinnell Glacier overlook. Would definitely recommend this but while the hike is short, the elevation gain is pretty tough at this point. If starting from Logan Pass, there’s a nice little stream/watering hole near the end of the trail that was wonderful to sit in after doing the hike.

Really snowy, but a great trail!

A nice walk along the river in the heart of Bigfork. Wonderful for kids and dogs.

Great Trail!

Not a super hard hike and the view is amazing! Would recommend maybe having yaktrax or something for the winter as it was a bit slippery. One thing to note is the road is closed to get to the trailhead in the winter so you have to walk an additional mile or so to get there.

The way up was so beautiful this summer. Amazing wild flowers. The trail got a bit rocky up top, so I think I’ll have to get some ankle support boots for next time!

Is it possible to park a motorhome at the trailhead? And if not, what is the camping like nearby?

I have hiked this trail a few times. There are some steep places, but no dangerous passages. The view is outstanding as it progressively increases in altitude. The headwaters area is fantastic, with many plants not common in our area.

Looking for a party to exchange keys with, leaving from East Rosebud Lake heading to Cooke City from July 31 thru Aug 5 of 2018. If interested please contact Jim @ jkidwell9@cox.net.

Although this is not a very long trail I found it to be a pretty intense climb. It had beautiful views and I was rewarded with paragliders when I reached the summit. Would definitely go again!

I would rate this as a moderate to easy walk. The day I went there was lots of foot traffic and I was the only person who didn’t have a dog with them

Beautiful hike! We hiked this trail after hiking to Grinnell Glacier. This trail is easy and beautiful all at once. It passes through dense forest. Beautiful lake with a beautiful beachy area. Great views from the lake. Bring water and a snack, carry bear spray. Make noise on the trail.

Amazing hike! We hiked this in September 2017, the trail is easy to follow and offers spectacular views the entire time. It passes through dense forest and open valleys, waterfalls and great views of the glaciers. We started early in the day and only saw 2 other hikers. Bring lots of water and a sandwich and snacks. Carry bear spray. The trail passes through prime grizzly habitat, so make lots of noise. The views of Iceberg Lake are amazing and there is another lake right before Iceberg Lake that is stunning as well.

Made this hike on a weekday in August 2000 (5 stars) and then again on a weekend in 2016 (4 stars). I would not do it again on a weekend due to the heavy trail use.
The moderate hike is very tolerable due to the shade. My legs grew more tired from the descent than the climb.
If you like wildlife, golden mantled ground squirrels and american pika are around when it's quiet. It was a lot of fun to watch them. The lake is gorgeous with the talus slopes and peaks in the distance.
