Bear Lake Road is an out-and-back trail that branches off from the north side of Turquoise Lake Road and provides access to the Bear Lake hiking trailhead. As you climb the mountain further into the forest, this trail takes you past a few destroyed gold and silver mines that helped put the nearby city of Leadville, CO, on the map. Overall this trail is easy, but a few steep grades and loose rocks require a 4-wheel drive vehicle. While there aren't any good campsites on this trail, quite a few are scattered around nearby Turquoise Lake.
