Allegany – Black Snake Trail

Bear bells provide an element of safety for hikers in grizzly country. The tricky part is getting the bells on the bears.

The Black Snake Trail is a fairly easy hike across small creeks and up a forested hill. The trail head said 3 miles, but it actually seemed more like 5. We didn’t see anyone else on the trail at all. We truly enjoyed the fresh mountain air and seclusion.Links:Thanks to my husband Karl for generating a topographic map of the region.Here is a nice topographic map of Allegany that you can customize and purchase.Allegany State Park Home PageReserve camping in Allegany State Park.
