bear lake is accessible only by foot, the road washed out many years ago. Says ryan hutton
If you like the outdoors you'll like it here in the Northern Sierra Nevada. Spring Valley Mountain can be seen from Bear Lake; hiking is a popular thing to do around Bear Lake; Lassen Trail is a fine local trail. You're perhaps interested in lakes, Concow Reservoir is one of those close by. Dry warm beds await you at Comfort Inn Central; swing by Frying Pan Creek
it's a great site to explore. A splendid trail in possession of an altitude variation of 1,226 feet, and 5.7 miles in length, can be encountered in close proximity.
