Very cold and wicked windy on the day of this review (11.18.17). Park ranger said it was 0° with the windchill. Snow pack was good but I highly recommend traction support. We rented ours for $5/pair at the warming hut. Thank goodness we did because I fell in the parking lot without them on. We also saw 2 accidents on the road up to the Bear Lake area. But it was beautiful and manageable with warm gear and traction.

Steady climb up to lake which is small but perfectly delightful! Freezing cold when we were there today following heavy snowfall overnight! But easy enough route manageable by most people/abilities? Road up was a different matter but the conditions improved BH the time we left!

ludicrously gorgeous for a short but inclined hike!

This is a picturesque small lake ringed by pond lilies. Unfortunately, overhanging clouds and mist obstructed the views of the surrounding peaks from here during my late July hike. Even with the low clouds though, there were still a few impressive views visible on the short and steady hike up from the Bear Lake parking area. I continued on to Dream and Emerald Lakes and was fortunate there were some breaks in the clouds to reveal the stunning views.

This is such a great beginner level hike!! It is only a mile but the elevation increase on the way up makes it a great workout! It's a beautiful hike with some beautiful scenery. Watch your step going up and down because in some places the trail path is patchy.

Nymph Lake is a hike that's short and sweet. Lily Pads decorate the lake and the mountains in the back are beautiful! Great place to take pictures without breaking too much sweat. On the same day we did Dream Lake and Emerald Lake. Which (if you continue the trail) is on the same path!
