Emerald Lake + Others Trail
The hike to Emerald Lake is one of the most accessible hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park. If you are visiting RMNP, and have limited time to visit, the trail to Emerald Lake is an excellent option. You’ll pass both Dream Lake and Nymph lake before you end your hike at Emerald Lake and it’s stunning views of Hallet Peak. For more information on this hike, explore the trail profile which includes trail map, driving directions, and helpful tips and resources to enjoy this Colorado hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. Get to the Bear Lake trailhead early: We say this for almost every hike near Denver, but the Bear Lake Parking area is probably the busiest in the park. If you can’t get there early, just take the shuttle from the lower parking area.

Bear Lake Trailhead to Emerald Lake
A toddler hike at around half a mile per hour. We saw a herd of elk as we drove to the trailhead, and we saw a marmot when we reached Emerald Lake. Also zillions of chipmunks and many varieties of birds.
