Details

We will start at the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, take the winter trial up to the intersection with the trail to Mills Lake. At Mills Lake we will contine up to Black Lake. Note that often no one has been on this 1.5 mile section of trail has not been used so the group will probalby need to take turns "breaking trail". At Black Lake we will go uphill the 0.5 miles to Blue Lake, note this section of trail will be steep and off trail. Note that I am not trying to scare members I just want to make sure folks are aware of the challenges.



Now that I have gotten the mandatory "warnings" out of the way I do want to say that the views from Mills Lake, Black Lake, and Blue Lake are beautiful. It will be a difficult trip but one well worth the effort.
