Location Iceberg Lake
Comments This was the most spectacular hike on our trip. 8 and 1/2 miles round trip, up and back down 1,700 feet. Iceberg lake is exactly what it says: there are icebergs that "calved" from the glacier that flows into the lake. I was quite surprised to see lots of wildflowers near mid-September. I was told that is was due to a wet Summer and a late Spring.

Glacier Pictures Did you know?
The park contains 700 lakes but only 131 have been named. Lake McDonald, St. Mary Lake, Bowman Lake and Kintla Lake are the four largest lakes. Numerous smaller lakes, known as tarns, are located in cirques formed by glacial erosion. Some of these lakes, like Avalanche Lake and Cracker Lake, are colored an opaque turquoise by suspended glacial silt.
