Great spot. We planned on doing the whole loop over three days, but stuck to exploring Bear lakes. The hike into the lakes from the Bear Lake side has some good elevation gains, but nice and varied landscape. Middle Bear Lake provides an amazing overlook from the scree field above the lake. Good scrambles up scree fields and ridge lines. Didn't see a ton of wildlife. Went last weekend of September 2015.
