“take in stunning views of this glacial lake”

The hike up Iceberg Trail begins at a short connecting trail that climbs for several hundred yards to join the main trail. The trail then turns northwest and passes below Altyn Peak and Mount Wilbur and then rises across the valley to the south. The trail then comes to a popular resting spot, Ptarmigan Falls. After passing the falls, the trail reaches the junction with the Ptarimigan Tunnel Trail, and then turns southwest along the Ptarmigan Wall. The trail then curls around to the south of the this glacial lake, known as Iceberg Lake.

Iceberg Lake lives up to all its hype. It's 4.9 miles to the lake. It was an easy hike (I had a hurt knee and was able to do it no problem). In the summer, there's lots of wild flowers and of course view of mountains. They do warn you that it is a bear frequenting area but the Rangers are good about keeping an eye out for them. There are normally a lot of people on this trail too so you're not just in the mountains by yourself. We came across two moose on the trail though and they just went about their business.
The lake is gorgeous though. Clear, light blue water. There were only a few icebergs left but we went in mid July.
Definitely a must see in Glacier!!
