Rocky Mountain National Park offers so many hiking trails that you will be sure to get on at least one that really has it all!! The Bierstadt Lake trail is uphill to the top (1.2 miles). The gradual uphill climb is a workout, but well worth every switchback.
There are fabulous views all the way. Rocky peaks, Aspen groves, grassy hills, wild flowers and at the end of the trail, a small lake.
The best part of this hike is that the lake is the perfect habitat for moose to hang out. We were fortunate enough to be there at the right time a female moose was feeding on the grass in the lake. What a treat!!
Restrooms available at trailhead.
The Lake at the end of Bierstadt Lake Trail offers the best picnic area around. Views, water and wildlife!
