Half Moon Trail - Open

The Half Moon Trail is open for your hiking pleasures. No bikes on this trail - hiking only. The trail starts from the Argentine North Fork Trail just below Black Mountain Lodge at tree line. It is beautiful. The first part is very easy and wanders through meadows and forest with stunning views of the East Wall and the Upper Mountain. A quarter mile into it, the trail gets a little steeper as it winds its way to Half Moon Vista. The views from there are extraordinary. Eventually, we will build a trail from the Vista to the west connecting to the Upper Summer Road and future Trail #5.

A perfect 2-3 hours - ride Black Mountain Express, do a round trip hike to Half Moon Vista, eat lunch at Black Mountain Lodge or The 6th Alley.
