Fodor's Review

These glaciers formed as one ice mass, but in 1926 they broke apart and have been shrinking ever since. The best viewpoint is reached by the 5½-mile Grinnell Glacier Trail from Many Glacier. The trailhead is at the far northwestern end of Lake Josephine. You can get there by boat or via the trail behind the Many Glacier Hotel. In summer, rangers lead six-hour hikes to Grinnell Valley that depart each morning from the Many Glacier Picnic Area.
