Our group of twelve hit the Glacier Gorge trailhead at 6:45am. Hiking in July means a good chance of afternoon spot showers. Bring a rain jacket. We saw several estimates on the length of this trail. 9 miles plus for sure. Mostly moderate with 4...More
Loved this hike. We passed 12 Elk on the trail to the lake. Awesome. We had to walk around them, as their were 2 babies in the bunch that we could see. Need to be in good shape to hike the waterfall to get to...More
Excellent hiking trails crisscross alpine fields, skirt the edge of isolated high-altitude lakes and bring travelers to the wild, untamed heart of the Rockies. If you have a day to spare, take a venture to Sky Pond or The Loch via the Glacier Gorge Trailhead....More
Not much to add to all the glowing reviews. Hike was just over 10 miles. You should be reasonably fit as this becomes difficult at the last mile with steeper elevation and 100' rock scramble/climb to the top. If you cannot do the climb the...More
My family and I completed this hike on July 14, 2018. The hike to Lock Lake was picturesque with several long views to the surrounding Rocky Mountain range. However, it wasn't until we scaled the vertical wall near the waterfall to get to Glass Lake...More
Per recommendation, we got to the park at 7:30, and were able to easily find parking at the Bear Lake parking lot. We wanted to park at the Canyon trail, however the lot their is much smaller than the Bear Lake lot, and while the...More

Yes. If you are not an avid hiker and not acclimated to altitude it will take you about 2-4 hours to get to Sky pond, depending on how much you stop (to photograph, eat, drink, etc.) and you'll need about half that time to get down, if you don't plan on stopping.
I am an avid hiker and mountain runner. I hike up and run down. Today I started on this hike at around 10 a.m. and was back at my car by 2:30. However, I ran down and made minimal stops (once to walk around The Loch, once to stop for food for 10 minutes). I did not stay long at Sky Pond because the sky was threatening storms.
