2.   Grinnell Glacier

The Grinnell Glacier hike is a round trip hike of 11.9 miles (19 KM) and 1,585 ft. (483 m) of net elevation.  Rolling land and additional effort will place gross elevation near 2,100 ft. (640 m).  Vistas are continuous and spectacular within the valley along the lower reaches of Grinnell Point and Mount Grinnell.  Near trail’s end, there is a steep climb over an ancient lateral moraine to arrive at the outlook.  This is a must-do hike in the Many Glacier region of Glacier National Park.
