Description

Bear lake is an exceedingly popular attraction in RMNP due to it's easy access and stunning natural beauty. Consider a short hike around the lake on the Bear Lake Trail or a longer hike on one of the adjacent trails. Interpretive signs on the trail offer great info about the area's natural and human history.

Short Walk: Park at the Bear Lake Trailhead and follow the Bear Lake Trail around the lake.
