Great trail through the canyon. At the end you are treated to beautiful views of the Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley.

Once you get to the ridge, it's amazing! Great change in terrain as well. The downhill is excellent when the trail isn't clogged with pedestrians.

This trail was the perfect length and difficulty for these two hikers! We saw such a variety of flora and even some fauna. We got an early start to avoid the worst sun. We chatted with nice people along the way and made it in and out in about 3 hours!

Once you get high enough for the trees to thin out the views of the Bozeman valley are very nice. On our hike we met a nice couple at the summit and had a good long chat on the way down.

A lot of traffic on a thin trail but lovely variety of landscape especially forest with lots of plants, flowers, trees and birds as you incline. The view from the top is pretty great.

Wonderful hike. The lower portion is prone to lots of bugs, but you gain altitude decently quickly. Gorgeous views higher up. Definitely go to at least the cairn if you are able.

Hiked with 4, 5 & 6 year old girls, one out of shape adult, 3 in shape adults and 4 dogs. We all enjoyed the hike. We only did the 2 mile hike but it was beautiful.

Uphill and worth every step. There are so many different views all the way up. We hiked about 3 miles and turned around after walking along the ridge. Our legs certainly feel it. We saw every body type on the trail so if you aren't sure you want to try it just do it! The views are worth it and the way back is all downhill.

Great Hike, Get ready to work your butt and thighs out. I did this hike with a 25 lb, 2 year old on my back. There is little even ground so the trail inclines a majority of the hike. Has great views along the trail and at the top. From the top there is an amazing view of the valley and of Bozeman. Get ready to just park at the overflow parking lot. The parking lot at the trail head only fits 4 or 5 cars. The extra walk isn't much, so save the time. Also there are many bikers on the trail keep your eyes and ears open and be ready to jump out of the way.
