Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short, wheelchair-accessible stroll around Bear Lake is ideal for families with small children or people having difficulty adjusting to the altitude. The views are nonstop from soaring mountains to quaking aspen.

When you reach Estes Park on CO 34, continue to the third traffic light and you will see a sign for RMNP. Turn left at the sign and go up a hill, bear right at the stop sign, and then bear right at the intersection 0.5 mile after the next traffic light.You will see signs for the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, which is worth a stop to see the overall map of the park."
