Pine Creek Lake is a pristine alpine lake set in a huge glacial cirque on the north slope of Mount Black. The trail is well-defined and meanders through forest en route to the base of Pine Creek Falls. Past the falls, the trail becomes steep and strenuous, continuing past a series of waterfalls and smaller lakes before reaching Pine Creek Lake, where great views and a well-earned rest awaits. If you're feeling frisky, head on up to Black Mountain for incredible views of Paradise Valley and the Beartooth Plateau.

Directions: From Livingston, drive south on Hwy. 89. Turn left on Pine Creek Rd., then turn right on East River Road. After a few miles, turn left on Luccock Park Rd., where a sign is posted for the Pine Creek Campground.

Still a lot of snow at Pine Creek this week, but if you're game you can still get up to the falls no problem-- but rain and snow this weekend, so wait a week or so!
