In my opinion this is the most beautiful spot in Rocky Mountain National Park. Spectacular scenery, beautiful wildflowers, cascading waterfalls, and beautiful alpine lakes are what you will find on your hike into Glacier Gorge. Bring along a fishing rod and a camera.

Loved the trail! Can see why it's so popular. Would definitely go back to explore more.

This trail was simply wonderful. Lots and lots of waterfalls, beautiful creeks/rivers and the mtn. views were amazing. We sat by black lake and ate our lunch and a small herd of elk came meandering down to us, very, very close. It was a little busy at the beginning but as we went on, the crowds dissipated. Enjoy.
