We enjoyed the easy walk around the lake after dinner and we were rewarded by a close encounter with a moose as we were leaving the wooden bridge (I actually thought the moose was going to step up onto the bridge!).

LOVED this hike in and out of woods around a lake. Streams come into it and folks fly fish on them. The water is freezing and clear and wonderful and the kayaking was great.

It is impossible to stand on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake and not be awe struck. The scenery and setting are stunning. It is a must stop view point in Glacier.

In addition to Going to the Sun Road, a visit to Many Glacier Lodge and Swiftcurrent Lake is well worth it. When there, we took a boat trip, a hike and a kayak experience. First, though we didn't stay at the Lodge, a visit there...More

A little construction on the trail near the boat house was the only distraction. Trail improvements by Conservation Corps workers will be amazing when complete. Wish the park would do something about the noxious weeds on the "nature trail".
