An uphill hike through Columbia forest to the cool waters of Marion Lake. Two explorers, the Reverend Swanzy and the Reverend William Spotswood Green, put Glacier National Park on the map for nineteenth-century climbers. Marion Lake is named after Green’s daughter. Lakes are very uncommon in the central Columbia Mountains. This one sits in a basin gouged by glaciers during the last ice age. Its water is clear but looks gray-green, like the rocks that line its floor. And it’s a tough climb for very little reward, as the lake is difficult to see through the trees. You will, however, have some nice views as you climb along this trail. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States. We plan to expand our topomap database in the future, however this map is not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
