This spectacular lake, bordered on three sides by mountains and located 1,000 feet above the trailhead, has patches of ice even in the warmest months.

I camped near this lake several years ago. First thing in the morning, a beautiful June day, I climbed up to the lake. A wonderful view, sun shining, lake glistening, and there in the middle - a large iceberg. I was the only person there,...More

My review is about the iceberg lake trail hike. Did this a week ago. Elevation gain is fine but the gravel trail definitely requires sturdy hiking shoes. Most of the trail is very exposed. In sunny summer days there is no need to carry layers...More

This hike has to rate up there with our most favorite hikes! It is close to 10 miles round trip, with 1300 feet in elevation gain. The beginning of the trail is a little steep, but it tapers off to a very mild grade. For...More

We walked the long hike there and back with 7 year olds so it's long but do-able. Once at the lake, people were getting in their undies and jumping in. It is absolutely farrrreeezing, but if you're brave enough it's worth the quick dip. You'll...More

It rained about 1.5 miles of the beginning of our hike, but the Ptarmigan Falls pit stop was a nice little reprieve. Of course once you get to the actual lake it's just gorgeous. Not as much ice as I thought there might be, considering...More

This hike was moderately strenous. It took us about 1 1/2 hours to reach the lake and it was so worth it! The water was a beautiful blue color with tons of ice floating on top. I even waded in the water to just passed...More
