Not that difficult and I am a first time hiker, so it was great. It's a long hike and difficult to climb up the water fall but there are turn around points before that.

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

Wow, this was tough! It is SO worth it though! Beautiful! You do have to climb a waterfall! Take bug spray and sunscreen.

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

This lake is awesome and I love the trail to get here. Sure, you will do some rock climbing and maybe even get wet from the water fall but it is so worth it. Don't quit. Keep going and enjoy the view.

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

My husband and I both love to hike, but neither of us are extreme athletes. I would rate this hike as "difficult" for sure, mostly because of the length, but also because of what it requires of you. We hiked in mid June, and there...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... More
