Bear Lake

Distance: 6.6 miles


This is a difficult 6.4 mile trip to Bear Lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness on the Southwest side. The last 1.5 miles is the most difficult because of the elevation gain. But worth it for the views.

This hike for the whole length you are surrounded by granite mountains on both sides of you. In the winter there are massive avalanches in the area. Last winter in this area, it was especially hit by heavy snow and there is evidence of the damage to all the trees. There was evidence of lots of wildlife in the area, I saw bear, deer, and elk scat. Did not see one person for the 3 days on the weekend we were there.
