Bierstadt Lake is an easy destination within beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park. It is easiest to follow the trail from Bear Lake in the winter. When you reach the lake, circle around to the northwest shore for outstanding photo opportunities of the monarch of Rocky Mountain National Park, Long's Peak, along with Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain. It is just spectacular to walk across the lake and see it in a totally different way than in summer.
