Bear Lake Trail

  Bear Lake was surely a disappointment! I'd heard it had good fishing, but after puffing up a long, steep, and confusing trail (we lost our way more than once, delaying our arrival about an hour) we found the lake nearly dry; muddy, and infested with mosquitoes! Next time I'll save myself the bother and fish the Conejos.
Says Big Dave

Bear Lake Trail is located quite a long drive from Espanola but there's great natural beauty awaiting you along it.
    There are many hiking trails in the San Juan and Jemez Mountains where you can truly take in all the beauty of these mountains. With so many outdoors activities available in Colorado you'll never get bored.
