Alberta Falls

Alberta Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The deservedly popular hike to Alberta Falls leads to one of the most frequently photographed waterfalls in Rocky Mountain National Park. No one turns off a faucet at Alberta Falls. Winter, however, does much reduce Glacier Creek’s glorious gush through a granite chute.

Such is human fascination with moving water that easy access on a well-designed trail makes Alberta Falls one of the park’s most popular hiking goals. Do not romp from rock to rock around the falls, at least one fatality has occurred here."
