Accessed from the Bear Lake trailhead, this busy network of trails threads through pine forest and over rushing streams, offering a spectrum of difficulty. The easy stroll to Alberta Falls is good for families.

Far more strenuous 5-mile options would be to hike up Glacier Gorge, past Mills Lake and many glacial erratics to Black Lake, or via Loch Vale to Andrews Glacier on the Continental Divide. The trailhead is served by the Glacier Basin–Bear Lake shuttle.
