Alberta Falls on Friday morning

Alberta Falls on Friday morning

Sunday September 9th - Photo Of The Week..

This week's photo, taken on Friday morning, features one of Rocky Mountain National Park's many natural treasures, Alberta Falls.

Situated at 9,400 feet, Alberta Falls is a short .6-mile walk from the Glacier Gorge Junction Trailhead. This is an easy hike and is excellent for kids. This is also one of the most popular short hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Along the way to Alberta Falls are many aspen that grew after a forest fire in 1900. Particularly with their fall color, these trees, along with the abundant wildlife in the area, make this an extremely pleasant trail offering many great photo opportunities along the way to the falls.

The Glacier Gorge Trailhead is located on the east side of the Continental Divide near Bear Lake. From the Beaver Meadows Entrance Station on U.S. Highway 36, head west less than a quarter mile and turn south on Bear Lake Road (toward Moraine Park). Follow Bear Lake Road approximately 9 miles to the small parking area at Glacier Gorge. Parking is very limited and this lot often fills up early in the morning. Use of the National Park's Free Shuttle Service to get to the trailhead, particularly during the busy summer months, is highly recommended.
