Glacier Gorge/Loch Vale

Glacier Gorge and Loch Vale are two popular areas of the park. Both are glacially carved valleys surrounded by a few of the highest peaks in the park. Both are home to classic alpine hikes and climbs. This area offers two main trails: Glacier Gorge Trail and Loch Vale Trail, both of which are accessible via Glacier Gorge Junction, on Bear Lake Road. Several smaller trails branch of these main trails, offering access to other areas of the park. A short trail connects Glacier Gorge Junction with the Bear Lake Trailhead.
