We didn't see bears, but there's low visbility with tall grasses and tree cover in many stretches. We crossed people within 15 minutes of them seeing a mama bear and her two cubs. Waterfalls were pretty and the lakes were nice and secluded.

This is a long, but easy hike to a beautiful fishing lake. Once there, work your way around to one of the inlet streams, and you'll experience some great fishing. Even if you don't catch a fish, the scenery is spectacular !

You will get to Bullhead Lake from the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail. Will pass Swiftcurrent Lake first. Both are beautiful and this is a hike worth taking.

We actually saw a cow moose swim across this lake, about a kilometer across. It's on the Swiftcurrent Trail, about 3.5 miles from the motel. This is a great hike, so check it out!

The hike to Bullhead lake was very scenic with many different views along the way. The trail was relatively easy to hike with little elevation change. We did stop at all the lakes and waterfalls along the way which made the hike more beautiful.
