George Lake Trail (George Hate Flail) - Trail, Livingston, Montana

George Lake Trail (George Hate Flail) - Trail, Livingston, Montana

DESCRIPTION

ride up the trail 15 min. and the trail forks. You can go strait to the wilderness boundry(probably a 15-30min ride) That makes a nice warm up. The fork takes you to George lake. The trail is a climb, with several switch backs and water bars. It is fairly technicle depending on the condition of the trail;however, the hole trail is doable. Once the trail tops out it rols along the top for awile. The trail is smooth and the views of the valley are great. Before you get to the lake the trail gets very rocky and starts to become painful.On the way down after all the switch backs there will be a trail of the left, take it.

Bring a GPS! I say this because even thought he trail is well maintained and a relatively brisk hike (5.5 miles or so), the trail has always pittered out on me about 4 miles up. I have always gotten to the same spot in the trail (only one way to go) and find myself surrounded by side trails, all of which disappear within a few hundred yards. I have met very few folks who have actually been to the lake, as they all seem to say the same thing.

Basically if you start on the Pine Creek Trailhead you will side-step and over a small hill for a mile or so before it really starts to climb. There are two big ascents and descents (both with water crossings in between). The third great ascent (at the top) is where I have always lost the trail.

If someone plans to do this trip, you should bring a GPS for the last mile or so... I guess the lake is beautiful

Bring a GPS! If you do not go directly to the Pine Creek Trailhead, try to cut-off trailhead which is about 1/4 down from the Pine Creek Trailhead. The right-hand turn-off to it is just across the road from the Luddock Park Camp. This cuts about 3/4 hour off of yourt hike, about 20 from your ride.

Pine Creek Lake, but may actually have to ditch your bike and actually do some hiking... ;P There is at least one deeper/faster water forge... tough enough on foot... about 2.5 miles up Pine Creek trail (a mile or so past the waterfalls).

Short kick but trail. It has all you need for a good all around work out. Way up there is a highly technical rock garder that a couple of locals from timber trails, in Livingston, have amazingly breezed through it. "Be aware!" one can bust butt very hard.
