Getting There: Take I-70 West from Denver, past the town and three exits of Idaho Springs. Take the next exit marked "Fall River Road". Just past the bottom of the ramp, take a right (north) on Fall River Road. Follow this road up past the town of Alice to one of two parking areas for the clearly marked trailhead to St. Mary's Glacier.
Did You Know? The only place in the United States (world?) where a river flows into a creek is by where you exit I-70 to head up towards St. Mary's Glacier. Near this intersection, Fall River flows into Clear Creek!
|Here is some good information I received from a local resident of the area via email:
The trailhead to the glacier.
... follow the closed road ...
St. Mary's Glacier from across the lake.
Avalanche territory in the winter.
The glacier as seen through the trees.
The trail around the lake towards the glacier.
Wild flowers, rock, and ice.
What the surface looks like up close ...
... and the lake from above.
What's that vehicle doing up here?
Along on this hike with me: no one.
