Bear Lake Road -- Bierstadt Lake

Yes, the duck is real.
An excellent way to hike this lake in the summer time is to start at Bear Lake and hike the 2.0 miles (elevation gain of only 245 feet) then continue along the path to the Bear Lake Shuttle Bus Parking Area (opposite Glacier Basin Campgrounds). The 1.6 mile hike from Bierstadt Lake to the parking area is downhill.

To relieve parking problems at Bear Lake, it is recommended that you park you car Bear Lake Shuttle Bus Parking Area and take the bus to Bear Lake. Also, at your hikes end, you will be at your vehicle and do not have to spend time waiting for the bus.
