Bullhead Lake on the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail

While Amy enjoys some short and easy hikes, she has no desire to spend an entire day hiking.  However when visiting a place like Glacier National Park there is nothing I would rather do than spend the entire day hiking through the awesome scenery!

Fortunately Amy really enjoys reading and is perfectly content to hang back and relax with her Kindle while I explore some of the longer trails on my own.  For today's solo hike I selected the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail.

Hike Route (highlighted in Blue)


My plan was to hike the first 4 miles making for a nice 8 mile out and back hike.  The trail features awesome scenery all the way and passes by several nice lakes, the largest being Red Rock Lake.

Just passed Red Rock Lake, the trail passes Red Rock Falls.

I hiked a little past Bullhead Lake where the trail starts to switchback up the mountain.  I decided to make this my turnaround point.
