Bear Lake Trailhead: Flattop Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Flattop Mountain is a large, flat summit space that offers access to the Continental Divide and the trails that crisscross from Estes Park to Grand Lake. It is a well-known hike that many locals gasp at and grab their legs when talking of their last trip to Flattop.

The trail is well-maintained even though it travels through timberline and alpine tundra. The crowds of Bear Lake disappear quickly as the long alpine climb (almost 3,000 feet elevation gain!) takes shape."
