Before hitting the road for 10 plus months of Traveling and Training, we took advantage of Boulder's access to Rocky Mountain National Park. We headed into the foothills from Boulder and about 40 miles later found ourselves in Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. After entering the park we took Bear Lake Road up to the very popular Bear Lake Nature Trail. A short .6 mile hike around Bear Lake and then we continued on up to Nymph Lake, about .5 miles from the Bear Lake trailhead. You can actually hike on up to two more lakes, Dream Lake and then Emerald Lake, but allow yourself plenty of time in the winter. Hitting this trail in the middle of the week is ideal as it tends to draw quite the crowd on the weekends.
