Construction on Bear Lake Road is still going on, so carpooling will be encouraged.

Visit Mills and Jewel Lakes and Ribbon Falls on the way to Black Lake in Glacier Gorge. High RMNP peaks tower over the gorge. Some high rock steps and small area of crossing boulders at entrance to Black Lake, also single boardwalk areas across marshy areas.   


Will car pool from parking lot. Look for orange CMC baseball cap. The last mile plus of the trail up to Black Lake involves climbing up rock steps, which are sometimes wet from the mist of the falls and streams. Many of the steps are higher than a normal stair step.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
