We didn't actually do this full loop, because we also went to the big hawk lakes. But we did get to Black Lake, which is a very scenic lake. There was still a lot of snow in the area, but around the lake was dry when we went. The lake sees a lot of lures, but it was great fishing when we were there.

My family and I headed up to hike Jewel Basin, which looked gorgeous from in town! Alas, it is May in Montana, and the road was snowed over about two miles from the trailhead. We did, however, see a black bear cub! Happy trails, and don't hike Jewel Basin til mid-June!
