The Blackmore Lake trail is a relatively short hike that begins near the northwest edge of Hyalite Reservoir. A dense pine forest and meadow surround this shallow lake, which lies beneath Mount Blackmore and Elephant Mountain. The hike can be extended an additional 3.5 miles to the top of Mount Blackmore; ambitious hikers can even continue down another 9-10 miles to the S. Cottonwood trailhead.

Take 19th Ave. south from Bozeman and turn left on Hyalite Canyon Rd. Trailhead parking is located to the right, just before you reach Hyalite Reservoir.
