Pass Alberta and Rebecca Falls, then east onto the little-used North Long's Peak Trail. This hike takes you through lovely subalpine forests with occasional panoramic views of high peaks and ends with a walk along a babbling brook with moss covered boulders and thick groves of aspen trees.
Bring two liters of water, snacks and lunch, rain gear, an extra layer of clothes, hat and gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses and hiking boots. Bring a Rocky Mountain National Park pass or money to contribute to the park entrance fee. Additionally, bring money to chip in for gas for the driver.

To meet the prerequisite for A-D hikes, you must have completed without difficulty a YMCA of the Rockies (Hikemaster-lead) hike of no more than two grades lower within two weeks before the hike. This means a C hike is the prerequisite for an A hike*; a D hike is a prerequisite for B hike; an E hike is a prerequisite for a C hike, and an F hike meets the requirements for a D hike.
Hikes graded A-D must have three guests, and hikes graded E-H must have two guests to go. This is for safety reasons. Hikes will be canceled if too few guests sign up.
A variety of circumstances may change the schedule of this hike. It is imperative that all hikers check in at the Mountain Center hiking desk (Base Camp) no later than 5 pm the day before the hike. Please bring your Y lodge room number or cabin name at that time.
