A high altitude lake with views of many mountains.
beautiful place !!!!!
Took the walk around Bear Lake (0.6mi. loop, elevation 9475 feet). At the beginning of the trail, on the eastern side, 12,713-feet, Hallett Peak dominates the view; along the lake's north side, you can see 14,255-foot Longs Peak. Nice stroll, also go check out Alberta Falls and if you're up for a real hike, go on to the Loch.
This trail is just outside the parking lot. Nice views. Good place to sit and reflect. Trail around the lake is not very long, but many trails you can branch off to.
Fantastic trail around the lake, offers great views! Did this on snowshoes and had a great time. We then hiked Flat Top Trail to Bierstadt Lake and had a great day!
First trip in 2013 with snow and ice covering the south side of the lake trail. Second trip in 2015 and then brought the kids in 2016. It's a staple to the trip, kind of a warmup trail.
So awesome!! A great beginner trail for snowshoeing & it branched off to other little lakes & Alberta falls! 100% worth the trip!
Easy walk. Keep going up the trail for a more challenging opportunity and more views
Great views and an easy beginners trail for snowshoeing. The trails were covered by snow, so it turned into a "create your own path" trip. Lots of fun!
Quick hike with beautiful views. A great starting place for other snowshoeing trails.
Was the absolute best place to go snow shoeing! Beautiful views of the Rockies & great trails!
