Bear Lake Nature Trail is a 0.7 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Estes Park, CO that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is accessible from March until November.
A high altitude lake with views of many mountains.
It was an easy flat trail with lake and mountain views.
I also enjoyed the autumnal tree colors.
A short little walk around a decent-sized alpine lake. However, after some significant snowfall, it becomes an awesome place to snowshoe.
Not really a "hike" - more of a walk
Nice easy trail, went in fall colors beautiful.
Started my day at Bear Lake and went west to Nymph, Dream, and Emerald Lakes before ending the day at Mills Lake near Glacier Gorge. Pretty crowded for a Friday but it's the end of season so I expected people to be trying to get their final fix of the summer in :) the aspen leaves were golden and just stunning. I would love to go back!
Beautiful loop around the lake for hikers of all ages.
Very easy hike of a beautiful lake. Saw all ages and skill levels on this trail.
Very scenic area!
Very scenic area but this is a flat, easy, well maintained trail. Not sure why it is labeled moderate?
Amazing in every way!
Amazing views. Great pictures.
Hiked this back in January. Had our 4 year old niece with us, so went for something easy. Very nice scenery, especially when everything was covered in snow.
Did this some 30+ years ago, it must have been easy if my parents did it, they were huge hikers
Very pretty, easy, paved. Good for children. However, very busy in the summer!! It is best to go as early in the morning as possible if you want to park at lake.
Beautiful views, easy walk around the lake.
