Getting from Bear Lake to Nymph Lake to Dream Lake was a chore. Some guidelines list this trail as easy... others as "moderate". I would choose the latter. Coming in, make sure you are well hydrated and otherwise carrying water with you. I certainly enjoyed the hike, the views, the challenge. The snow pack was anywhere from 5 feet to 20 feet (according to my guide, David, from YMCA of the Rockies). I recommend snowshoes (or at least boot spikes) during the late winter/early spring) for traction. I am going back this weekend (3/26/2017) to give this trail another go. Well worth the effort. Take your time - stop to catch your breath and take in the beautiful scenery that is RMNP!

The hike is worth it when you get to the top. There are some icy parts and can be pretty difficult towards the end.

the views from the summit are stunning.

Enjoyed this hike and yes it is difficult due to rocky technical terrain and steep ascent and descents. Beautiful vistas!

Great Trail! First hike that we took our 5 year old on and it was perfect in distance and difficulty level. Awesome views!

I love this trail! It is an easy walk, with a stunning postcard view the entire way.

This was a fairly challenging hike, although it's categorized as one of the easiest 14ers. We took snowshoes but ended up not using them. YakTraks were essentiall, as were trekking poles (sure glad we had them coming down). Allow yourself about five hours to complete the whole thing. I was surprised by how heavily trafficked the trail was. Quite a few backcountry skiers. The views from the summit are spectacular!! Best of all, we saw 10-12 mountain goats up close and personal!

gorgeous, difficult ♡
