Visiting This One Mountain Lake In Montana Is Like Experiencing A Dream

When you live in Montana, you know there’s nothing better than spending a beautiful day by (or on) one of our lakes. Montana has the best lakes in the country, and there certainly is no shortage of blue water and rocky shoreline. If you’ve never seen Lava Lake firsthand, make this the year you check it out.

It’s easy to see why the Lava Lake Trail is so popular — even in a state full of stunning lakes, this one really stands out. For a much shorter hike in the area (that also leads to a lovely lake), check out Bozeman’s Fairy Lake.
