Winter Climb from Lost Lake Trailhead Date Climbed: Jan 2, 2010
Hiked up the new Lakeside/Blacktail Trail to the top. We encountered 3 feet of snow for the last couple of miles. I expected a 3 hour hike, but it turned into 5. My son and I made it to the top at 5.30 as the last light of the sun was almost gone. The trail is going to be a great addition to the mountain (when it is completed...and especially during the summer). The lower section of the hill, as of today, is quite hike-able and scenic.
