Bring on Bear Lake Summer

Now that Bear Lake has officially defrosted from its record breaking winter, it’s time to remind ourselves that the summer season makes it all worth it! For instance, the days where you can start your mornings in the beautiful mountains on the endless trails there are for hiking, ATV, and horseback riding. Then spending the rest of the day cooling off and relaxing on the sandy beaches of Bear Lake. “The best of both worlds” is what the locals like to call this paradise.

To find a printed map of the accessible trails in the area, you can visit our Ranger District office in the town of Montpelier. The Bear Lake Forest Service also specially offers an interactive map on their website that allows you to explore camp sites, hiking trails, and fishing areas. 

Visitor Maps are also available on the website for each national forest and grassland area. They provide forest-wide information on attractions, facilities, services, and opportunities. These maps are available to purchase from individual forests and many retail outlets. The most comprehensive source for maps is the US Geological Survey. Forest Visitor Maps are also available on mobile technology through the Avenza Map Store. These maps DO NOT show all existing Forest Service roads. For a map that shows the most up to date road and motorized trail information see the information on obtaining a Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM).”
