    I didn’t like Grinnell Lake very much. The trail is easy and kind of boring under the trees without any views. I highly recommend instead doing just the loop around the Josephine lake, west side first, coming back to the...

    The regular Grinnell Glacier hike but then we looped around Lake Josephine just to mix it up. Views are much better on the north side. Considerable uphill but mostly pretty gradual, well worth the incredible views.
