Beautiful glacier and wildlife views with a moderate hike. We saw numerous birds, pikas and 3 marmots on the trail.

Loved the views on this hike. It does have a lot of elevation gain so be prepared. Bring comfortable shoes or boots

We spent about 4 hours hiking the trail and stopped for lots of pictures. A moderate hike, lots of others on the path and a well marked trail. Views of the valley, Angel Glacier as well as many wild flowers and alpine animals.

Great hike for those that wish to see scenery, but are not sure of their physical abilities (i.e. seniors, or those not accustom to hiking more than an hour). You can hike the whole loop, or just to the toe of the glacier and still...More
