Bullhead Lake – 7.2mi / 11.6km

Bullhead Lake

The hike up the Swiftcurrent Creek drainage to Bullhead Lake is the perfect trail if you want to take a longer hike that remains mostly level, offers picturesque views, and provides great chances to see wildlife. The trail begins by weaving by Fishercap Lake and Redrock Falls (see Fishercap Lake/Redrock Falls for their descriptions), and then continues on to Bullhead Lake where you will spend more time in the open.

At approximately 3.5 miles in, you will arrive at a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the largest body of Bullhead Lake, which makes for a great spot to rest and have lunch.

Trailhead: Follow the Many Glacier Road straight to the parking lot for Swiftcurrent Motor Inn. The trailhead is located at west end.

Elevation Gain/Loss: 200ft / 60m
