   Upper Two Medicine Lake
Upper Two Medicine Lake, Glacier National Park
Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park is a very popular hike in the Two Medicine Area.

Upper Two Medicine Lake
Upper Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park is one of the most popular hikes in the Two Medicine Area because of its beauty and relative ease to hike to.  The prominent color of the rock in the Upper Two Medicine Lake Area is RED due to the red colored Grinnell Argillite. This rock type is very common throughout the entire Two Medicine Area

Take the Boat!
The most popular way of getting to Upper Two Medicine Pake is taking the Two Medicine Wooden Boat "Sinopah" first thing in the morning to the far shore,and then hiking the rest of the way.  Visitors enjoy a lunch at Upper Two Medicine Lake and then hike back to the boat dock.  They will then catch one of the boat trips back to the Two Medicine parking lot and general store. 
You are saving about 6 miles total if you take the boat!

The other way of getting there is by taking the South Shore Trail (or the North Shore Trail) from the parking lot and hike along Two Medicine Lake and then on to Upper Two Medicine Lake.  This is obviously a longer hike, but it is also quite popular.  We strongly recommend taking the boat.

Trailhead:  South Shore Trail,
                           Two Medicine parking lot near boat dock.

Distance: 5 miles (one way)   
Distance via Boat & Hike:  2.2 miles (one way)
Elevation Gained:  350 vertical feet
 
Twin Falls

Twin Falls, Upper Two Medicine Lake, Glacier National ParkTwin Falls is one of the splendid treats along your hike to Upper Two Medicine Lake.  You'll see the sign indicating a short side trip to get to the Twin Falls.  It's definitely worth the short amount of time required to view these beautiful falls.  The photo to the left is one of the twin falls.  The other falls is to the right of it (not pictured).

In the early summer, Twin Falls
are really roaring 
because of
all the snow that's melting in the surrounding
mountains above
the falls.

But even after much of the previous winter's snow has melted, Twin Falls are still a sight to behold and to enjoy, so it doesn't matter what time of the summer season you take this wonderful hike to Upper Two Medicine Lake.

Once you arrive at Upper Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park, you'll be very glad you made the effort. The lake is surrounded by very large mountains, such as Mount HelenLone Walker Mountain, Pumpelly PillarSinopah Mountain, Mount Rockwell and Rising Bull Mountain.  These mountains make for a gorgeous setting as you enjoy your lunch on the shore of this beautiful lake.
