Timberline Falls (at Loch Vale) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Melting snow from Taylor Glacier trickles north into Sky Pond, spills into Icy Brook and Lake of Glass, and plunges over cliffs at Loch Vale. Timberline Falls is a pictureperfect waterfall in a storybook setting, and one of the best in Rocky Mountain National Park.
The first section of this hike takes you into Glacier Gorge and past Alberta Falls, also described in the hike Glacier Gorge Trail Waterfalls. Follow signs to Alberta Falls, then
continue 1.3 miles past the falls, and take the right fork to get on the Loch Vale Trail. As you approach The Loch, Icy Brook cascades past the trail, and you’ll have great views of the brook and glimpses of 13,153-foot Taylor Peak at the southernmost switchbacks."
