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!

Easy hike. Very pretty lake with yellow water lillies. Moderate traffic - start early.

Nymph Lake Trail had a pretty decent looking lake that had a ton of lilly pads and wild flowers. It was pretty cool but the waters were murky and wasn't as good as Bear Lake. The hike to get to the lake didn't have anything too special about it as well.
