Amazing hike, big elevation gain but gradual slope. Views the entire way. Saw bear scat, a family of 4 goats right on the trail, and 10 sheep.

Took us 5.5 hours total. We went down really fast and it is really hot today.

Awesome hike! Make sure you start early and bring plenty of water, most of the trail has little to no shade. 6 hrs with 1.5 hrs at the top.

Great trail, starts off very mild along the shores of the lake before heading up towards the glacier. Perfect for a day hike.

Danielle. We had a big downpour of rain and hail that we had to wait out on the trail under a tree. Saw ram sheep and a grizzly bear.

Beautiful hike. Didn't continue all the way to the Upper Grinnell Lake because of trail advisory.

Amazing hike!!! Camped and ate by the glacier
Aug 24, 2018
Quite a few people but the views are incredible the entire hike.
Aug 19, 2018
Josephine lake trail detoured to south side so added mileage. Also missed cut off and ended at hidden falls and backtracked adding more miles.

Hiked this trail With Emily. it was tough but we made it. We loved the view at the end of upper Grinnell Lake. So cool and so cold.
Aug 14, 2018
Probably my favorite hike in the park so far. The views are fantastic everywhere. We did the boat ride and thus cut off about 3 miles. Nice ride.
Aug 10, 2018
This trail has some of the most amazing views along the path and is open the majority of the way so prepare if it is a hot day. You'll be in the sun
Aug 9, 2018
Extremely beautiful ascent, especially in the rising sunlight. However, considerably crowded descent detracts from trail's serenity.
Aug 7, 2018
Hiking through the waterfall on the way up was an unexpected but refreshing surprise. Gave us our second wind to finish the trail on up
Jul 31, 2018
Really tough exposed hike but totally worth the views

Amazing hike. Beautiful views throughout.

Snow advisory on the upper trail. Have to cross some snow/ice fields and hug some cliffs but worth it.
Jul 7, 2017
Trail was closed 3.1 mile up. So you can not get to Upper Grinnell Lake. Snow bridge was failing and unstable. We saw a grizzly cub 100' on trail.
Jun 5, 2017
Trail closed at 3.2 miles in. Got as far as lower Grinnell Lake. Grizzly sighting & snow covered in about 4 spots.

Hike up until the snow was mid calf and turned around. Nobody else was on the trail. What a wonderful hike.
