Flattop Mountain:   D/R/E: 8.8 miles - 2,849' elevation gain
Hiking Distance Is The Total Length Of The Hike

Departing around the north side of Bear Lake, the Flattop Trail offers more of the alpine tundra hiking so outstanding in Rocky Mountain National Park. You rise steadily through the various ecological zones, starting with the conifer forest around Bear Lake. After a couple of miles, the terrain will have opened up and you can peer straight down to Emerald Lake, more than a thousand feet below the trail. You will continue climbing, often over a snowfield in summer, until the mountain really flattens out. You will feel like your are on an enormous plateau at an elevation where the gods live.
