Length: 10.3 miles
Trailhead: Follow the Many Glacier Road straight ahead until you see clearly marked signs for the Grinnell Glacier Trail.
Boat rides across Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine can shorten the hike to about 7 miles. Please note that there is a fee to ride the two boats.
The first two miles follow the north shores of Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine. Then the trail gains elevation with views of Grinnell Falls, Angel Wing, Mt. Gould, the Continental Divide and Grinnell Lake. To view the glaciers and Upper Grinnell Lake, make sure you follow the trail up and over the rocky moraine beyond the picnic area.
