Nymph Lake Trail is a 1 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Estes Park, CO that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
Nice little climb. Always crowded. Lake is not the most picturesque, but lovely. Good trail to run kids on.
Keep going! Dream lake is just a bit further and much nicer views.
Nice easy hike with kids. Uphill on the way. Easy downhill on the way back.
My wife's favorite lake there for some reason, Personally I like Dream lake much better, if you got the time, you should push yourself the extra distance & get in two very nice lakes!
The incline was rough for me, maybe took us 15-18 mins to get to the lake, but once we did, we were rewarded with this magical view!
Nice trail and lake was shady to rest before we trekked onward to dream and Emerald
Beautiful. The lily pads were in bloom. I expected the Lady of the Lake to emerge with Excaliber at any moment. Very ethereal.
Be sure to get to Bear Lake Parking lot early as the lot will fill. Nymph lake is beautiful and short hike from the trail head. Asphalt trail for awhile/railroad ties... hard to miss this lake. If you are up for a short hike with those who are not acclimated to the elevation, children, non hikers... this is a beautiful quick hike for you but can get very congested for those reasons too.
5/15/16 short and sweet! took longer because of the snowpack but, crampons were worth the money! smaller than expected. Low traffic in the morning
0.5miles from the parking lot makes it the most crowded trail and destination in the Rocky Mountain National Park.
Both the Bear Lake (start) and Nymph Lake are beautiful, but start early (before 8am) and on a weekday if you want to enjoy the sounds of birds and not people.
Steep almost paved like trail. Lake had an okay view, easy trail with a baby on my chest.
Super short and nothing to write home about. If you climb the rock by Nymph Lake you can get a beautiful view but keep going to Dream Lake.
We hiked up to Nymph Lake with a two year old. If I recall, most of the trail is paved, which is probably a good thing as this is sometimes a high-traffic trail. It's a very easy hike, but I'd highly recommend continuing up to at least Dream Lake. There's a rock not on the far end of Nymph that offers a nice view and Dream Lake itself is a very scenic lake. Nymph Lake is fine, but is not especially stunning and the hike itself it only okay by RMNP standards.
