  • We hiked to the lake during the afternoon. I guess that in the morning it would be better in order to see the lake exposed to the sun. It was not too long or hard as a hike. We enjoyed the colirs and ...  more »
  • This 10 mile round trip hike is well worth the time. The trail is not difficult with a very gradual incline all the way to the lake. You are going to have to hike through snow if you’re there in June....  more »
  • My wife and I hiked the Iceberg Lake trail in 2001, before TripAdvisor was available. It was our favorite place to hike in Glacier National Park and we had hoped to hike on this recent trip (6/25-6/28...  more »

  • A beautiful site for you once you get here. An easier hike and well worth the initial climb. Go early and stick with it, you will not be disappointed.
  • Almost a 10 mile round trip hike. Breath taking views and wildlife. It was just barely opened, so the was plenty of snow! With you pictures, looking at everything, enjoying everything and slow to moderate pace- took 4 1/2hrs.
  • Absolutely stunning with great trail to the lake. Still lots of snow near the lake in June 2018, but with hiking poles, it was easy to navigate.
  • Was at Iceberg Lake in early June. Very few people provided a special experience. The upper trail was frozen and snowed over. Spent our lunch watching a family of mountain goats walk the ridge above us.
  • Phenomenal lake! Very surreal and absolutely amazing. The water is freezing but it is worth a quick stand in the water after the long hike. This hike has a TON of elevation gain. A lot of it you are in trees, but it is so worth it. I recommend combining this with the tunnel hike if you are a crazy hiker like me. Oh, there is a pit toilet nearby, unless it is an absolute emergency, stay far away. Pretty gross.
