The hike to Alberta Falls follows a well-constructed path to one of the park’s most photographed waterfalls. This easy path to a waterfall is 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 1900 forest fire. Particularly with their fall color, these trees make this an extremely pleasant trail. Heavy use has dictated that a certain percentage of the throngs, those who are ignorant of proper wilderness behavior, have carved their initials on the white aspen bark along this trail. Thankfully, most of this damage appears to be fairly old.
