The full tour includes a more difficult part with a narrow and steep path and quite a few steps (the western edge of the lake).

The Black Lake is a wonderful Lake, a great spot to take pictures, have a swim or to meditate. It is so quiet here! Its possible to hike and bike here and they have a park for climbing near the lake too.
Very nice glacier lake. It's definitely worth the visit. It takes about an hour to walk around but longer hikes are also possible.
