Redrock Falls, Glacier National Park

Date: June 30, 2011
Distance: ~2 mi (3.2 km)one way

Redrock Lake

After returning from my failed attempt in the rain to reach Grinnell Glacier I was looking for somewhere to go that looked a little drier in Glacier National Park.  I decided to begin hiking up the trail from the trailed by the Many Glacier campground knowing that I probably wouldn't be able to get all the way to Swiftcurrent Pass because of the amount of snow still in the mountains.

Shortly after setting out on this trail I passed Fishercap Lake and continued on to Redrock Lake, which looked a bit nicer than Fishercap.  At the upstream end of Redrock was Redrock Falls, a series of short but raging waterfalls.  I continued hiking up past the falls for a little while, and the trees were fewer in number here than in the lower part of the trail, but before I reached Bullhead Lake or Windmaker Lake more rained began to move in.  I didn't want to get completely soaked again so I turned around.
