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.
great views of the valley at the end of the trail. lot of fun!
Great local hike. Mostly steady climb to great views of Bozeman.
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.
