Late Sept:
Relatively easy. Rocky in parts. Good aspen color around Bear Lake atm. Bierstadt Lake beautiful with specked snow on mountains in background with sun.

Harder than I expected but exhilarating all the same. Trail is snowy in parts, not as well marked as I would have liked, but quiet and serene ...gorgeous. We went Bear to Bierstadt Lake, then to the Bierstadt shuttle lot. Difficult rock navigation on the way to the lot in two spots. Push on and you'll make it.

Took the Bear lake to Bierstad lake route then crossed over to the Glarier Creek trail back to the parking lot at Bear lake. Made for a nice loop and only added a couple miles.

Awesome trail that features two gorgeous lake. Snowshoed it and enjoyed the gorgeous views at both lakes and on the section in between the lakes. Highly recommend this trail or adding this to a larger hiking loop in RMNP
