This is a moderate one way trail in Rocky Mountain National Park.
This is an alternate route for Dream Lake via Bear Lake Trail.
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.
