Description

This short run pays off big with incredible views of Dream Lake and a mountain-top back drop. From the eastern shore of Dream Lake, you can take in the stunning view of Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain separated by the Tyndall Gorge. On a still day, the glassy surface of the lake reflects this magnificent backdrop making for great photo opportunities.

Short Run: Just short of 1.5 miles from the Bear Lake TH on the Dream Lake Trail.
