Activity: Hike Bells Canyon - Classic, beautiful 4.5 mi. out-and-back trail that offers a little bit of everything to see - features a lake, waterfall and city views. A bit steep at the last 1/3 mi but worth it. Well maintained trail.

*Note - In November, we hit a snow/rainstorm and the trail was slushy with a small 4 inch deep stream running down the middle. Waterproof boots are a MUST as well as a waterproof shell and warm gloves and hat on days like this.
