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.
