Description

From the Bear Lake parking area (there will be great signage and there should be an established skin track but one still needs to pay attention), skin-up and head out on the Dream Lake trail.

Follow Dream Lake trail to the Emerald Lake trail and continue along until you reach Emerald Lake, the massive 1,000' north face of Hallett Peak and the impressive Dragontail and Dead Elk couloirs. Enjoy the scenery!
