Had a picnic by the lake, it was great. Quick half hour walk around the lake as it was quite small. Bear lake was so crowded we couldn't get there

What a BEAUTIFUL walk around the lake. Gorgeous vistas in every direction. A picture’s worth a thousand words so take a look at mine. Enjoy!

Another fun hike! Happily not long and flat! Seeing three different glaciers was also a highlight. Lots of Nature, and a beautiful place. Plus there's a bathroom!

Sprague Lake is located on the drive to Bear Lake. It is also a short distance from the Park and Ride. Nice views even if you don't hike. Easy access from the parking area. Picnic tables available.

This isn't really a 'hike', might be something you'd want to do at the end of a day of more challenging hikes or if you just want a easy stroll.
Having said that, if you hit it on a day that is really still, little or no wind, you can get some reflection photos that are really fabulous. There is a spot where the major peaks of the park, and the continental divide are right there, up close.
Lots of fly fishermen trying this one! There are picnic benches handy, it is just a great spot to stop for awhile.
Also, there isn't any elevation gains so anyone can walk this one!
