My wife and I did this trail after hiking to Lake Haiyaha. You have to go around Mills Lake first. Great views of Long’s Peak and Keyboards of the Wind among other peaks. Very pretty with lots of wildflowers. The falls from the outlet of Black Lake is very cool. Fairly tiring due to distance - remember you have to come back also - and the elevation gain. Detoured by Alberta Falls on the way back.
