Trail Head Information

This Hike starts at the popular Brear Lake and Glacier Gorge trail heads. It includes the popular Alberto Falls. Glass pond sits at an elevation of 10,813 ft.

This hike starts off by Alberto Falls. Alberto Falls is very popular with the day trip crowd. However, most people will turn back here ;-)

Here a picture of the Lock Vale. As you can see it still has snow in July this year. In fact, a few week earlier this year this is as fare as you could go with out ice climbing gear!

More Snow Pictures. This is July it was 100+ degrees back in Dallas!

Yes you are going to have to climb this to get to Glass Lake! It is not as bad as it looks. Though you are going to get wet. You actually need to climb up to the right of the water fall to get to Glass lake.

Finally Lake Glass. You can see Sky Pond in the background. This hike was worth the effort to get here!
