Hike to Lava Lake

By Mark D. Roberts | Tuesday, August 25, 2009

During our recent trip to Montana, my family and I, along with several friends, hiked to Lava Lake. This 5.5 mile hike involved a substantial climb (1600 ft) along a fast-moving creek. The forest was dense and lush. The trailhead is about a half-hour south of Bozeman, on the edge of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. If you’re in the area, this is a hike well-worth taking. Here are a couple of photos from the hike.

Remember, when you’re hiking in Montana, you’re in grizzly bear country. Be sure to hike in groups, and it doesn’t hurt to have some bear spray with you, just in case.

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
