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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

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.
