Description

The ascent to Mount Black is arduous and steep, but short. One who's into "gettin' after it" can leave work on a Friday in summer and be hiked up to Pine Creek Lake just before sundown. Setup camp, hit the hay, and be up at dawn to climb the peak just to enjoy the views while the snow warms up and corns up the snow.
