Sky Pond via Glacier Gorge Trail
Long, but well worth the effort. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Hiked this route on Nov 11, 2017. Departed Glacier Gorge Trailhead around 10:30 AM. Visited Bear Lake. Reversed direction back towards Alberta Falls and onto The Loch. Ate lunch at The Loch around 12:30. Continued on toward Andrews Campground. Had to put on gaiters at junction to campground because snow was too deep and trail was not packed. Andrews creek provides good source of flowing water. It was not frozen over. Arrived at campground around 2:00. Had to put on snow shoes to access camp site. Prepped my camp site by shoveling snow from area where I️ wanted to pitch my tent. Had site setup by around 3 pm. Got up at 6 am next morning. Packed up camp and left camp site around 7 am. Pumped water at andrews creek and began hike out at 7:30. Arrived at Glacier Gorge trailhead around 9:30.
