Alberta Falls

4.00 out of 5
View Topo Map


This is a pretty easy trail accessed from the Glacier Gorge Trailhead with only a 160 ft elevation gain. You'll hike for 0.9 miles one way alongside Glacier Creek, through a forest. After crossing several bridges over the creek you'll be at the rushing waters of Alberta Falls.
Trail length: 2 miles

    One of my favorite hikes in all of Colorado. There are multiple paths of multiple lengths and difficulty, so it's nice to be able to pic something that's at your pace. However, each trail is unique and scenic. If you want to hike straight up into the mountains with a beautiful lake every 2 miles, you can do it! If you want to hike through some waterfall areas, there is that too. There are several other lakes along the way, surrounded by woods. It's a must see if you are in northern CO.

    Nice, easy hike through a forested area. There are a few bridges to cross over before getting to the falls. Alberta Falls is a nice waterfall. The sound of the water is relaxing.
