Getting ThereGo to Bear Lake at the end of the Bear Lake Road in RMNP. Park. This area is 200m from the lake towards the inlet side. "The trail is pretty solid these days with all the traffic, and it steps over the wooden fence on the south side of the inlet creek then stays climber's left above the creek for the remainder."
