  • Sky Pond is 4.9 mi/7.9 km from the Glacier Gorge trailhead with an elevation gain of 1650 ft/503 m. The trail passes by Alberta Falls and the Loch before climbing up Timberline Line to reach the Lake ...  more »
  • This is a great hike. Lots of people mistake lake of glass for sky pond. You need to go up the Falls and hike past lake of glass to get to sky pond. It’s incredible!  more »
  • Hiking here is about 9-10 miles round trip. It is not for the faint of heart. The hike starts getting really tough just before Timberline Falls and getting to Sky Pond requires scaling the steep side ...  more »

  • No matter where you are, every view is a good one. The climb up Timberline Falls was a surprise, but it was the highlight of the whole hike. It was about twenty feet up, with plenty of handholds, but the water trickles made the rocks slick. Going up was easy. Down was the hard part. Totally feasible if you are careful. One of the best hikes I have ever done.
  • This was our 1st 10 mile hike for this season here! From climbing up the Timberline waterfalls to slipping in the snow on top of the mountain to the breathtaking views of Glacier Gorge, Alberta Falls, The Loch and Lake of Glass we experienced it all !! Definitely my most favorite hike so far !
  • By far my favorite hike it's strenuous but worth the effort. Amazing views on the way up.
  • Top 5 hike in the park. Quite strenuous. Timberline Falls, Lake of Glass, and Sky Pond are simply breathtaking.
