    Dan Tamburro reviewed RMNP Bear Lake to Alberta Falls to Mills Lake (Mt Estes, CO)

    11 months ago

    There are other combinations of these trails, but I prefer this one. Starting at Bear Lake, continue to Alberta Falls, then on to Mills Lake and back. As you approach Alberta Falls, you climb adjacent to a series of increasingly beautiful falls prior to reaching Alberta Falls which are a prime photo stop for many. I love the sound of a stream to river to fall escalation as I hike. Many hikers turn around and return from here so there will be less traffic out to Mills Lake. Mills lake is the exception to AM hikes being the best. There are beautiful dusk to twilight to evening reflections on this lake. Simply stunning. Combining these makes this hike between easy and moderate. Horses are allowed on parts of these trails. You always have the option to turn back after the falls. Though I highly recommend the hike out to Mills Lake and back.You may wish to add the Bear Lake Trail loop of 0.8 miles at the beginning or end of your hike: this adds an easy and scenic lake hike.
