Great hike with the family. Lots of choices of loops and great views. We enjoyed being under the cover of the pine trees.

The hike to the lake is fairly easy and would make a great day hike for just about anyone and is also a beautiful resting spot. Getting to the peak is much more challenging. I was not accustomed to the altitude and was breathing heavy most of the way! The two sets of main switch backs were very difficult but getting to the peak is very rewarding and well worth it! Took me just over 3 hours to get to the peak and about 2.5 to get back to the trail head.

Good trail for a short hike. Not very well maintained, definitely wouldn't want to go after it rains. Views from loop 1 are good but I imagine from loop 3 are better. Good signage along the trail to easily track progress.

If you're looking for a challenging day hike near Bozeman, Blackmore Peak is a great option. The trail starts out fairly easy through thick conifer forest and winds down to Blackmore Lake where you will get a nice view of the peak you’re about to ascend.

the lake is easy to get to and a great pitstop for dogs before continuing to the peak! five star rating is for the peak- it is a must! so beautiful and green- we saw mountain goats and the 360 degree views are amazing. about 14-15 miles round trip, but moderate difficulty as far as peaks go.

Decent in-town trail. Wasn't as trafficked as I was expecting, but some bikers definitely ignore the "Slow Down" signs. Some good views of the surrounding ranges though!

Nice hike to get up and out quickly if you don't have much time for a hike but just need to get out. It does loop around and has a map on the trail head to keep you in the right direction. Fun but easy hike. I packed my 25 lb daughter with me on this one and was really nice.

Even with snow it's not to difficult and easy to follow, dog friendly :)

Steeper than expected at first, but overall a nice hike through the woods with pretty views over the valley.

Beautiful trail by the creek. Not too crowded.

I love this trail. It's more of a walking trail than a hiking trail. We love to bike on this trail or walk with our dog. It's shady and beautiful, with a creek alongside the trail. The trail is surrounded by an open garden and in the back of a lot of houses, so you don't get a lot of privacy, and it's often crowded. It's in town, so the convenience factor is nice. I like to take visitors here, as it's good for all ages and really peaceful. Sourdough has a lot of history in Bozeman, so that is cool too.

Great easy trail for little kids or beginners. go in early summer to see beautiful wildflowers! the rock is pretty cool and you're able to climb around and explore. my kids like the sand at the base. we were the only ones on the trail the last time we went, which I really like.

We hiked with a 9 and 11 year old. Short but steep and the payoff is a fantastic view. Well worth the short excursion. Not crowded, but we were warned of a bear sighting at the top.

Absolutely stunning from the top. Met an older gentlemen in his 70's that has made it to the summit over 80 times

Good trail, nice length with some great views. traffic was more moderate than light, so if you're looking for privacy this might not be the trail for you. The first 1/3rd of the trail can be a bit grueling with a continuous, sometimes steep incline.

Some fun and accessible rock climbing at Frog Rock with wonderful views. Good trail for wildflowers if you're looking for some nature photo opportunities.
