Hiking and Mountain Bike Trails near Bear Lake

Bear Lake Mountain Bike Trails

As spring makes its way into Bear Lake, early leaves and flowers welcome you as you ride or walk a lake or mountain trail. Temperatures are mild, even during the middle of the summer, so hiking is pleasant. The fall months of September and October are some of the prettiest and most scenic with the brightly colored leaves and the tranquility of the lake. View Bear Lake Trails and Photos on Wikiloc.
