This hike leads you to a small isolated high alpine lake that provides you with varied scenery.  The trail follows Bear Creek on the west side and alternates between forest and open meadows.  At approximately 2.5 miles, the trail bends east towards a wall of high rocky peaks.  The final half mile turns south up a steep hill and emerges at Jennie Lake.  I didn't have a lot of time for scrambling around, so I just had a bit to eat, took a few photos, and headed back out.  It wasn't a real difficult hike and it allowed me to get out again before the snow started to fall.  I would only return if I made a backpacking trip out of it and did some climbing around on the peaks above the lake.
