National Park Service: Junior Ranger Online - Many Glacier - 1 (Glacier National Park)

There isn’t a view much better than this.

Swiftcurrent Lake provides the perfect setting to the mountains that loom in the distance. Dominating the view is Grinnell Point with Mount Gould to the left and Swiftcurrent Mountain to the right. In between Grinnell Point and Mt. Gould is the cirque where Grinnell Glacier lies. One of the most popular hikes in the park is the trek to Grinnell Glacier. That trail typically opens in mid-July. Opening sooner are the hikes to Red Rock Falls, Iceberg Lake, Apikuni Falls, and Cracker Lake. Many Glacier is a hiker’s paradise.
