Black Mountain 26/10/08

Michelle at Black Mountain:
“Eleven of us tromped around the trails of Black Mountain with perfect weather, superb views and CoLoUrFuL conversation. Construction is in full swing, but the re-route signs are easy to follow towards Yew Lake and Black Mountain. The new trails are wide and well defined, although after the switch backs and gaining most of your elevation, there are many half frozen ‘mud pit’ sections with which a few members got well acquainted with. On the route we chose (multiple options available) we were quickly rewarded with great views of the Tantalus Range and the Lions from presumably the north summit before dipping back into the forest on an up-down type trail. We passed numerous tarns – quite pretty little lakes before reaching the impressive Eagle Bluffs at the south summit with rewarding 180-degree views.”
