What people say

"A 6 mile round trip to Lava Lake is a steady climb that runs beside Cascade Creek through the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. The trail starts at the Gallatin River and continues upward through dense evergreen forest"
"A great year-round hiking trail with little elevation gain. Pack a snack and hit the trails to Lava Lake. The trail is a popular destination in the summer and recommend getting out early to be the crowd. "
