The hike to Dream Lake is only 1 mile and climbs very gradually all of 425 feet rewarding those who do a gorgeous view of this appropriately named alpine jewel. The trail conveniently skirts Nymph Lake so the two are commonly done together even by families with small children.
We did this on our return from Emerald Lake but it is a perfectly nice destination in itself if you are not looking for any exertion. Do very early morning to avoid crowds and for best light. It's magic.
Directions: Bear Lake Trailhead is two-thirds in on Bear Lake Road in the eastern portion of the park.
