    A short easy hike. It gets pretty crowded as the day goes on. Go early, beat the crowds.

    The hike to the falls was pretty easy so we continued to Mills Lake. It started raining before we got there so we went back down the mountain to Bear Lake. It was a nice hike and the falls were beautiful.

    Great hike. We got 18" of snow the night before so the conditions were perfect for snow shoeing. Was somewhat disappointed because the falls were covered with snow. However, I've seen it in the spring time and it is magaificent. Highly recommend.

    Made this hike during Colorado's first winter storm of 2009. A few very good viewpoints and the falls are pretty good too. Not a hard trail at all (my mother and father who are in their 50s and NOT hikers were able to do it without much trouble).

    Great short hike in RMNP. Glacier Gorge is the premier trailhead in the park. Albert Falls is a good stop on the way to great places.

    There aren't many falls in the area and this one is pretty nice. Worth the effort.

    Good trail to snow shoe. Trail signs not always clear or mileage accurate.

    this is a easy trail although it is crowded and the parking is not much fun you can however catch a shuttle up to the area. the reward is getting to the falls and taking in its breath taking beauty.

    A fun short hike--the falls still had quite a lot of water flow, even on October after a dry summer. We should have come a week earlier when the colors were at their peak
