Saddlebag Glacier Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

This well-drained, 3.1 mile level trail winds its way through stands of cottonwood and spruce trees.  It guides the hiker through a small, glaciated valley to the outlet of Saddlebag Lake. Split log bridges at several small stream crossings aide the hiker during high water periods. From the lake outlet, Saddlebag Glacier can be viewed at the far end of the lake. Mountain goats can often be spotted on the cliffs on either side. The lake usually has icebergs near the outlet.
