Enjoy a shady old-growth Ponderosa forest along the shores of this idyllic little lake. This wheelchair-friendly trail gains virtually no elevation yet transports you to a world away. Summer sunshine warms the Ponderosa pines, providing that sweet summer aroma.
Black Pine Lake is hidden high above the Twisp River drainage in amongst sagebrush hillsides and mature Ponderosa forest. Fishing either from the bank or a floating dock is easy. A shaded forest service campground makes for a good basecamp at the east end of the lake.
The Black Pine Lake trail is mostly paved with a few little frost heaves and piles of pine needles to negotiate. Views of the lake are throughout the hike. At the turn around point, a park bench offers rest and a view of Hoodoo Peak and the Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness.
