Ideal place for a safe overnight stay in the mountains. In the bivouac on summer weekends, CAI volunteers are almost always present, a reassuring presence if you are not experienced hikers, to whom you can turn, even for a good coffee in the morning.

The Black Lake is a mountain lake of glacial origin, of the Pistoia Mountains. Its basin is a basin formed by the excavation of an ancient glacier. Located at 1730 m a.s.l. it is surrounded by imposing Apennine reliefs that reach 2000 m a.s.l., in particular from Alpe tre potenze (1,940 m a.s.l.). It owes its name to the dark reflection emanating from its waters, which flow into the Sestaione stream, the largest tributary of the Lima river, the largest tributary of the Serchio river.The lake can be reached by following path no. 104 CAI white-red, starting from the Forest Botanical Garden of Abetone in the Sestaione Valley. Near the lake there is a CAI alpine refuge, the Lago Nero Refuge, with a bivouac that is always open.
