Panorama view from the summit of Hallett Peak. The dominant peak to the southeast is Longs Peak, the sole fourteen thousand foot peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake are visible to the southwest (right). The hike to the summit of Hallett Peak from the Bear Lake Trailhead is a Rocky Mountain National Park classic and should not be missed. The views from the 12713 foot summit of Hallett Peak are spectacular. September 2005.
