Short and easy around a nice lake with view on the mountains.

Very short and easy. Short hike for end of day to avoid the crowd.

Great wide path around the lake. No hills, super flat. Gorgeous scenery. We went at 6:30am on a Sunday and were one of a few people there. Great time to go before the crowds.

Short, great for children, stroller friendly

Very easy and beautiful. Keep walking for more of a challenge and an even better view.

If you're willing to climb up some rocks along the waterfall, you'll be rewarded with a great view. The trail itself is very short, but it would be challenging for anyone who was not very sure-footed.

Horses clearly come through here, because we were walking around their droppings the whole time. The dry dirt circular path is underwhelming compared to the other paths in the park, but it is very easy to walk.

Amazing trail with plenty of water view and river trail!

So beautiful

Not dog friendly, wanted to hike it but was under the impression dogs were allowed. Once we got there and wanted hike there was a big sign that said NO DOGS ALLOWED. Least to say we didn't get to hike. what a big disappointment. Please, update your information.

Thanks,

The location is nice since it is right off the road on the way into Estes. View are pretty. Parking can be a bit tough. Crowded. Folks need to remember that dogs are NOT allowed in RMNP.

Wonderful views. The trail was great for the kids (ages 6 and 9). Bring your bug repellant of choice. Lots of mosquitos near the lake. Soo beautiful!

Nice little hike to stretch your legs, after riding in the car FOREVER, before getting to your real hiking destination inside Rocky. Love visiting this little spot. Gets pretty toasty in the summer time. Watch your footing on the slippery rocks near the falls and the loose gravel along the way.

Quick family hike.

Beautiful lake. Reading the map I was worried about the % grade, but it was easy. Took pictures at most rock outcroppings. Enjoyable and great views.

Finally found parking at Glacier Gorge Trailhead. Hiked out to Alberta Falls and then headed back to the trail junction and headed to Bear Lake. Walked the .5 mile loop around Bear Lake. Took the shuttle back to Glacier Gorge. Absolutely beautiful hike. Took a lot of pictures. Not a pro hiker. Uphill stretches are tiring but well worth it.

Very easy beginner trail but so beautiful everyone will want to go. I walked Bear lake trail first then took Alberta Falls Route. A lot of people on weekends.

At over 12,000 feet not everyone would consider the uphill part of the trail easy. The views are spectacular. Of course there are too many people.

The trail is uphill the whole way to the lake. Not everyone would find it easy. The lake is pretty but there are way too many people on the trail to make the trip enjoyable.

Really pleasant nature trail. Too many people, but that seems to be the nature of everything today.

I combined this trail and the Emerald lake trail, for totally about 4 hours. The scenes along the trail are very good. Maybe because the elevation here is too large (~3000m), I was very tired although the trail is not hard.
