Iceberg Lake was the top thing I wanted to see in Glacier and I was not disappointed! We went in a hot day in July, but the water was still freezing and had tons of ice floating in it. My friend and I took off our hiking shoes and walked barefoot to an iceberg near shore and got pictures on it. A very cool experience for sure!

The hike was about 5 miles out to reach destination. There were still iceburg and several chunks floating in the lake, on our trip we saw a moose about 200 yards from the lake, a black bear in the valley, and a grizzly on the road on the way out. Great experience.

Of course, this is a fantasetic hike and lake, mitigated by the crowding. Go early in the morning. Wait to return after 5pm in the summer.

Starting this hike was uphill and miserable, then it evened out. Beautiful views, crossed several streams, plenty of stopping places, easy to take your time. Quite the trek to the waterfall stopping place (ate lunch) and trudged on. Be sure to look up on the cliffs when you’re near the snow area, there are mountain goat/sheep there. The snow is an adventure to trek to (some may get angry, I know I did!). Once you get to the river either go all the way to the right, go through it, or grab a stick that’s there and cross the fallen trees…the river is very strong). A short trek up to the lake and enjoy all your determined glory!

Wear sunscreen and reapply!!! We didn’t reapply and our faces got burnt.

Our family of six took this hike on the first day of our trip to Glacier National Park. The first part of the hike is rather taxing but once you get past that part, it levels out. This is a 10 mile hike round trip so you will want to make sure you have plenty of water, lunch food/snacks, and bug repellent. Hiking poles would have been helpful but we bought them after this hike. We saw several moose on the way to the lake. When you get to the Iceberg Lake, it is gorgeous! Beautiful pictures! Take your shoes off, and dip your feet into the freezing cold water after your long hike. Have lunch on the rocks by the lake. Enjoy every minute!

Back in '88 (date below was required), my girlfriend (now ex-wife) and I took this trail while vising Glacier NP. I don't recall the exact distance but it took us at least 4 hours. While hiking along, I looked up the mountain to our right and spotted a Grizzly ambling along, parallel to our trail. We picked up the pace and were eventually out of sight. This trail is very open, so I wouldn't be concerned about seeing a grizzly -- just keep your distance, and feel good about having seen one of these rare and beautiful animals while enjoying the trail. Iceberg Lake is quite remote -- never saw anyone else during the entire hike, and we were alone at the lake. Highly recommended trail though! Terry

This hike offers incredible views and ends at a picture perfect, clear lake with floating ice. The scenery to and from the lake is exceptional -take time to appreciate it. Also, take sunscreen, bear spray, and snacks. The hike is easy, only about 10 miles round trip and I felt like the most difficult part of the trail was at the beginning. It was one of my favorite hikes in the park.

The hike up was a gradual incline which made the hike easy. We went up in the morning and beat the crowd. The lake on top is peaceful. You can go in the water if you wish... but it’s cold. This can be an easier supplementary hike to do instead of Grinnell Glacier.

I wanted to go see the iceberg lake before all the glaciers are gone!! The 10 mile hike to the Lake is worth every single step!
We arrived early and started the hike around 9 am in a sunny August morning. It was picture perfect day. The view of the lake and surrounding mountains are unbelievable!!!
The hiking was moderate to hard and goes up in elevation. Bring plenty or water, snacks and bear spray. We saw bear and fresh bear scat on the trail.
The Lake is so pristine blue surrounded by snow capped mountains. The view of the lake is phenomenal and divine, surrounding mountains is simply unbelievable.
I wonder with this rate of global warming happening if the next generation would be lucky enough to enjoy this view and nature as a whole. LOVE LOVE & Highly recommend.
