A Late August Hike to Black Lake RMNP

Yesterday, Les Beery hiked to Black Lake RMNP. This is one of the most scenic lakes in Glacier Gorge.  Surrounded by tall granite cliffs, the trail to Black passes several waterfalls above fields of wildflowers.  At 4.7 miles and 10,650’ it’s a challenging hike due to the nature of the trail leading to this deep lake.  Anyone that has hiked there is sure to notice the endless stairs and areas where trail crews had to chainsaw a canyon through mountains of downed timber…THANK YOU Trail Crew! The brook trout were feeding at Black and I also educated a few rainbow trout on the way back that were enjoying terrestrials along the trail at Mills Lake. My favorite flying ant pattern came through again.
