Starting at the Bear Lake trailhead in Glacier Gorge, follow the signs for Nymph lake, your first destination. In summer it is filled with lily pads. Heading up to Dream Lake from there follows a well maintained trail, with great views, wildflowers, and wildlife.

Beautiful views at lake. Crowded on weekends but get up early and to parking lot by 8 am. Definitely worth it to go on to Emerald Lake.

Heavily trafficked even with wind and blowing snow. Easy but engaging trail, great views, one of my favorites in any weather.

Absolutely loved this trail. Started at the Bear lake trailhead and made my way around the other lakes to end at this one. A nice and easy hike to a breath-taking mountain lake. Will definitely go again.

One of the most beautiful places in Rocky Mountain National Park. Endless views, beautiful lakes and incredible mountain scenery. I highly recommend.
