Overview: The Grinnell Glacier Lower Lake Trail and Grinnell Glacier High-Upper Lake View Point Trail are two excellent hikes from start to finish(both starting/ending at the same TH with other options also available). These two day hikes are the two most popular in the Many Glacier Area of GNP. If you have never had a close-up look at a glacier, this hike to Grinnell Glacier-Upper High Lake Viewpoint offers an excellent opportunity to take a look close-up. If you are familiar with glaciers, then take this hike for the outstanding scenery. Views on most all sections of this trail are expansive, and one wonders how they can improve, but they do! As the trail begins to climb, transversing steep ledges to reach the alpine meadows on the side of Mount Grinnell. Below lies turquoise blue lower Grinnell Lake with Morning Eagle Falls coming into view below Bishop's Cap and with Angel Wings towering above the lake. In early summer(late June-July), water streams off Mount Grinnell, tumbling beside and often over the trail in roaring cascades and lacy of Mother Nature's ultimate places to experience!!
