  • Listed as an easy hike with slight elevation. With snow still on most of the hike it was more trying but still a great hike.  more »

  • Wonderful trail and falls. After the falls keep going if you are in good shape up to the lake... Gorgeous!
  • We chose these falls based on recommendations from friends and researching the ease of the hike (not that this is easy, but compared to some of the other longer, more intense trails it's not bad). We started at Bear Lake and walked around it (beautiful scenery all around), then moved on to this trail. There are some steep parts, but seeing the falls makes it so worth it! There are rocks to climb (be safe with your footwork!) and breathtaking views to see. We had two of our teenage kids with us and they were even impressed (and really liked climbing on the rocks). Very scenic, I highly recommend!
  • We try to visit Alberta Falls every time we visit the park. They are the best falls in the park. This year they were even more impressive due to the late season snowfall and subsequent melt.
  • Liked it so much , view was amazing. It’s a short .8 mile hike . But definitely not easy 😊 as we went after hiking around bear lake , so we were little but tired but it was fun though and once we reached at fall . It was so refreshing . A must visit fall. Definitely will come back.
  • It's really pretty and very crowded. It's a short 1.6 miles hike out and back, and is perfect for family with little kid(s).
