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

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
