The Loch is about 6.9 miles long and located near Bear Lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes a half day. Once we saw the water careening down the canyon so freely, We decided to hop over to the opposite side of the stream and scale rocks and ledges most of the way to capture most of the beautiful shots that we were able to. Once you make your way to The Loch, you will experience some of the pristine beauty that the Rocky Mountains hold. Our intentions on this day were to make it to Sky Pond just a ways up the trail and work our way back to Glass Lake and finish up our fishing at The Loch. Unfortunately due to having to take a bus into the park and a little bit of a late start, we had to settle for The Loch. It was amazingly breath taking to see the canyon and surroundings once we got there! You can get a view of a Andrew's Glacier.
Plan accordingly for travels to and from the bus depot and trailhead during the 2012 and 2013 season due to road construction delays. The road is accessible between 4 P.M. and 9 A.M. with your personal vehicle, after those times you will have to catch free public transportation. Also note, that during this time, admission into the park is waived, so you can save quite a few bucks this way as well!
