Hike to Mills Lake, Video Trail of Trail

On this day we hiked to Mill Lake from the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Hike to Mills Lake is moderate with an elevation gain of seven hundred and eighty feet.  Four tenths of a from the trailhead you will cross Chaos Creek, with a trail junction up to Bear Lake goes to your right.

 

 

Alberta Falls makes a beautiful cascade over a thirty-foot cliff, Just a little over three fourths of a mile on up Glacier Creek.  Beyond Alberta Falls in one mile and six tenths is the junction to the trail up to Longs Peak, stay right to continue on to Mills Lake.  In another half mile you reach the junction for Mills Lake, as well as many other destinations, the Loch, Sky Pond, Haiyaha Lake, and even turn this hike into a loop hike down to Dream Lake, Bear Lake and back to the Trailhead at Glacier Gorge.

 

 

Continuing onto Mills Lake crossing Vale Brook entering into Glacier Gorge.  Upon reaching the two mile and four tenths mark, is a small trail just before the foot bridge that goes forty yard to Glacier Falls.

After Crossing Glacier Creek in two tenths of a mile is Mills Lake.  Is a beautiful sub-alpine lake carved below majestic peaks of Pagoda Mountain (13,497’), Chiefs Head Peak (13,579’), and Keyboard of the Winds.

Before Heading down, the large boulders along the lake shore are great for a picnic.  If you are feeling energetic, another mile and seven tenths down the trail is Black Lake up the north shore trail.

If you are backpacking there is only one campsite in this area.
