Crews wrapping up work on Dick’s Lake Trail hiking loop at Eaglecrest
Eaglecrest’s CCC Trail Crew has nearly completed the Dick’s Lake Trail, a beautiful hiking loop located at the top of Black Bear Chairlift.
The beginning portion of the trail follows the cat track traverse to East Bowl Chutes. There’s a fork a short distance in, and hikers can loop left for excellent views of the ski area, Fish Creek Valley and beyond. Going right leads straight to Dick’s Lake.
The trail is about 2,000 feet long, and only a 200-foot section at the farthest end of the loop remains to be finished.
If you’re hiking on the mountain, be sure to make way for heavy machinery and Eaglecrest staff as they work hard to finish up their projects before the snow falls.
