Black Mt. Trail

6.3 mi • 884 ft gain

Highlights

  • Although of modest elevation, Black Mountain's perch above Lake George is in-your-face dramatic.
  • A great trail loops past multiple lakes before switchbacking along ledges to the summit.
  • The best view is north from the summit; sneak past the edge of the closed off cabin and firetower complex to get the choice-est perch of the day.
