Half Moon Trail - NEW

Our Trail Crew is building a new hiking trail (no bikes) called Half Moon. The trail begins near Black Mountain Lodge. It winds through the woods just East of Lower Lenawee Lift before climbing through a rocky area in Half Moon Glades. It tops out at tree line at Half Moon Vista. The trail is just under a mile long. The first half is very, very easy with little elevation gain. The second half is steeper gaining almost 350 feet in elevation. The view of the East Wall from Half Moon Vista (and most of the trail for that matter) is extraordinary.

This can be a simple hike for those riding Black Mountain Express or it can be a longer hike from the Base Area when combined with Argentine North Fork Trail. Construction should be completed by late August.
