Backpack out to this stunning glacier-fed lake and enjoy views of the amazing waterfall.

It's a 1600 ft slow increase in elevation. You can walk around the loose rocks going around the lake for an additional 2 miles of hiking.

There is a back-country campground at the base of the glacier-fed lake and an amazing waterfall at the opposite end of the of the campground.

To camp overnight in Glacier National Park, you're required to have a backcountry permit. Get the latest information from the park at nps.gov/glac or call the park at (406) 888-7800.
