Bear Lake

Bear Lake (Snohomish County) is in the North Cascades on the Mountain Loop Highway (FR 20) and can be reached by taking FR 4020, then FR 4021. This beautiful, 20 acre lake is surrounded by forest and is only a short hike from the road. The lake is named appropriately because bears frequent the area. Use reasonable caution while enjoying lunch along the lake shore.
