Lake Josephine, Glacier National Park

Lake Josephine is located in Glacier National Park, in the U. S. state of Montana. Swiftcurrent Lake is immediately to the northeast of Lake Josephine and the two lakes are separated by a short (.3mi) stream. Lake Josephine is accessible via the Grinnell Glacier Trail which follows the west shoreline of the lake for 1mi.

  • An absolutely beautiful lake. You get to pass it doing the Grinnell glacier hike, or you can hike right down to it. It's not very busy so you can sit and watch the occasional ferry come across.
