Alberta Falls

Trail Review:

Rating: Easy
Distance (round trip): 1.2 mi.
Elevation Gain: 160 ft

Beginning at the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, you will hike 0.6 miles on a upward sloping hill before reaching Alberta Falls. The trail winds through aspen forest, where there are many sunny outlooks and vantage points of the gorge.

Alberta Falls was named by Abner Sprague and his wife, early residents of the park who named many of the landmarks in their backyard - now Rocky Mountain National Park. Alberta Falls is one of the most prominent waterfalls in the park and can be glimpsed from the trail to Lake Odessa from Bear Lake. 

Tip:  You can also begin your hike from the Bear Lake trailhead by taking a spur trail downhill to join the Alberta Falls trail.
