This trail begins at Glacier Gorge Junction. Scenic Loch Vale is enjoyed while hiking to the beautiful Timberline Falls on the park's east side. The trail then continues beyond the falls to Lake of Glass and up to Sky Pond, 4.6 miles from the trailhead. Loch Vale, Lake of Glass and Sky Pond offer fishing opportunities. Before fishing, check with the Park Service for license requirements, size and possession limits and other regulations.
