Cracker Lake, 12.2 miles round trip, elevation gain 1,400 feet. Unlike other hikes in Glacier this trail is a little less used, one reason is it starts as a heavily used horse trail, another is perhaps the scenery is not as dramatic as some of the other hikes at the beginning. See Map.

5D Mk III, 70-200 f4 L IS, 70mm, 1/320 sec at f7.1.

But it makes up for that with towering cliff walls, wildlife and plenty of time to explore a less visited area, only 3 campsites allowed in the cirque.
