Colorado Vacation Part 2: Hiking to the Loch in RMNP
If you hike this trail, I recommend you start early. We parked at the Glacier Gorge trail head before 8 AM. It is a short ways to Alberta Falls, and this is the main reason I say start early. There were about 5-6 people here on our way up, and it was a traffic jam on our way back.
Once we passed the falls, we started seeing more and more snow.
Near the Loch, the hiking trail started looking like this.
The Loch was beautiful!
We had planned on going past the Loch, but, unfortunately, we kept losing the trail in the snow, so we turned around.
This is one of the views on the way up/down.
