Mills Lake Trail

Mills Lake is perhaps the loveliest lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. At least many visitors claim this is so. As you hike the trail to the lake, be ready for incredible views of Alberta Falls. When you reach your destination, you can view Longs Peak and Glacier Gorge.

Trailhead: Find a small parking lot a little less than one mile before you reach Bear Lake on Bear Lake Road.
