Since I visited Glacier National Park in May, many of trails were still closed because of snow and ice.
However, I was able to hike one of the most popular trails in the park: the Avalanche Lake Trail.
The 4.6-mile (roundtrip) trail cuts through thick woods, with moderate climbs in elevation. The highlight is the lake, which is rimmed with steep cliffs on three sides.
The melting snow in late spring/early summer creates several waterfalls, which send water cascading down the cliffs.
It’s a must-see for any visitor to the park.
