Bear Lake Trailhead: Flattop Mountain
Flattop Mountain is a large, flat summit space that offers access to the Continental Divide and the trails that crisscross from Estes Park to Grand Lake. It is a well-known hike that many locals gasp at and grab their legs when talking of their last trip to Flattop. The trail is well-maintained even though it travels through timberline and alpine tundra. The crowds of Bear Lake disappear quickly as the long alpine climb (almost 3,000 feet elevation gain!) takes shape. Outstanding Features: Timberline, views of alpine lakes, tundra, summit hike
