This hike is a good one at sunrise or sunset. Plenty of birdlife.

Bear Lake Trail is 1.6 miles one-way. It is located off Bear Lake Road approximately two miles north of Flamingo. The hike is a journey through a dense hardwood hammock mixed with mangroves. More than 30 different tree types may be identified. As a result, it is an excellent area for observing woodland birds. Once you reach Bear Lake, retrace your steps back to the parking lot. The trail does not circle the lake.

Directions: From Flamingo, FL, Bear Lake Trail is located two miles north of Flamingo. Travel Main Park Road over the waterway and immediately turn right onto Bear Lake Road. This road takes you to the parking area / trailhead. Signage is good.
