Sky Pond

This classic Rocky Mountain National Park lake hike isn’t for the faint of heart. This one also starts at Glacier Gorge as well. It requires a pretty steep hike up with a good bit of elevation gain and covers almost 10 miles. But the views are definitely worth the effort.

To get to Sky Pond, there is a short scramble up a waterfall. This can look tricky at first, but the climb is doable for people of all ages. Once at the top of Sky Pond, you can continue to follow the small trail around the basin to the Lake of Glass.
