Glacier Falls is the second of many waterfalls found along the Glacier Gorge Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park. From the Beaver Meadows entrance at Estes Park, drive a quarter of a mile and then take Bear Lake Road about eight miles to the Glacier Gorge Trailhead. Follow signs to Mills Lake and Alberta Falls, crossing four footbridges and passing Alberta Falls at three-quarters of a mile. Continue on the trail, following signs to Black Lake. Cross another footbridge at about two miles and then hike up rocky slabs left of the trail. Do not approach the slabs in wet, icy, or snowy conditions, as the drop-off on the other side is substantial and a fall would be fatal. On dry rock, peer down into the abyss below, at Glacier Falls.
