"One of the most picturesque and popular hikes in the park, the trail to Grinnell Glacier can be shorted via two tour boat rides. The route passes crystalline lakes rimmed with huckleberries, rugged peaks, and, at trail’s terminus, three of the park’s famed glaciers: Grinnell, Salamander, and Gem, which scientists believe will melt away by 2020."
