Lava Lake Trail
The Lava Lake Trail follows Cascade Creek through a thick evergreen forest. The trail begins at the Gallatin River, across from the big pull-out at the 35 MPH Bridge, and continues past a few waterfalls to a forest-lined lake surrounded by granite walls, with the Spanish Peaks in the distance. This is a great hike on a hot summer day, especially if you enjoy a cold but refreshing swim.
Directions: Take Hwy. 191 south into Gallatin Canyon. A few miles past the Storm Castle turnoff, look for a signed entrance on the right, just before the bridge.
