Lake Como Loop

Lake Como Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Lake Como National Recreation Trail serves as either a convenient loop or as the first leg of a longer backpack into the Rock Creek drainage.

It's minimal profile, low elevation, and fine views of the Como Peaks make it a good candidate for earlyseason hiking in the Bitterroot foothills. You can hike the loop in either direction, but this description follows the trail in a counterclockwise circuit from the Lake Como Day Use Trailhead and parking area adjacent to the Upper Como Campground loop."

"Lake Como is a premier recreation destination between Hamilton and Darby. The lake, the largest in the Bitterroots, was named by Father Ravalli for the Lake Como in his native country, Italy. The 906-acre, manmade lake lies in a gorgeous glacial basin at 4,245 feet beneath the stunning granite spires of Como Peaks."
