Located south of Bozeman, the Blackmore Lake begins near the west shore of Hyalite Reservoir. A dense pine forest and meadow surround the lake beneath the Mount Blackmore and Elephant Mountain. The hike can be extended an addition 3.5 miles to the top of Mount Blackmore or as a one-way 13 mile shuttle to the South Cottonwood Trailhead.

Directions: Take 19th Avenue south from Bozeman and turn left on Hyalite Canyon Road. Trailhead parking is located to the right if Hyalite Reservoir.

This trail offers seclusion from the crowds that usually populate Hyalite. Not too hard to hike, and ends in a picturesque setting.

The hike is nice and easy to the lake, great for snow shoes, xc skiers, or hikers- but be ready for the next 3.5 since the trail gets much steeper. I went up in a light rain and slipped all over the place in August. You do have a lot of tree cover until the last mile or so though, and the wildflowers are incredible in the summertime!

What's your take?

So, what do you REALLY think?
Have pics of this place? Toss 'em in here! Keep it clean, though, this is a G-rated establishment!
