Glacier Gorge Trail Waterfalls

Glacier Gorge Trail Waterfalls Professional Review and Guide

"Eight unique falls from five water sources grace the trail in Glacier Gorge, Rocky Mountain National Park. At Alberta Falls, Glacier Creek gushes over boulders in a powerful horsetail, fills a punchbowl, and cascades past the trail. The creek flows just as strong at Glacier Falls, in segments hidden below the trail in a deep and steep-walled chasm.

At higher altitudes, enjoy views of “Shelf Falls” and “Solitude Falls.” These waterfalls are hung high in the cliffs between 12,668-foot Thatchtop and 12,660 foot Arrowhead, are fed by Solitude and Shelf Lakes and Shelf Creek, and spill over the mountainside in segmented horsetails."
