Dad Hike Map


Easier than the M hike. Hiked this trail with my 5 year old. Took 2 hours with plenty of stops and breaks along the way.

Great short little hike, upper trail was a touch muddy. Took 1.25 hours, and that was with plenty of stops and geocaching along the way.

Great hiking area but this is not a Jeep or off roaring trail. I live a mile away from the trail

Went hiking (no snowshoes) and was so happy to find a great hard-packed trail. Absolutely beautiful views and fairly easy trail for the first mile or two. We turned back from there, not wanting my dog to have to cross a small stream in freezing weather. Keep in mind it’s “Jeep only access” recommended for the last mile to the trailhead. A full-size truck would have been too wide and you needed ground clearance too.

Great hike. Just very busy. Lots of off leash dogs.

Superb views but steep climb and slippery in winter

love this hike! one of my favorites ❤❤❤

Went during the Thanksgiving break in Nov 2017. It was snowy and icy for most of the trail. Slippery without ice grippers for soles. The trail itself is not very challenging. A couple of good views and interesting creek crossings. It was a good place to get out to.

Nice loop trail close to downtown. I was visiting a friend and she took me out. The views are good and the trail is dog friendly.

Some spots are very inclined and very easy to slip but overall it’s not that difficult. Not too long either.

Easy trail with a longer, less steep option and a steeper, shorter option. Both paths are very nice and not super steep. A pretty short hike with great elevation and views from up top. Lots of off leash doggos- might be good info for those who plan to bring their pups. Overall, a pleasant and brief afternoon hike that is only 5 miles from Bozeman city center.

Not sure why it's rated moderate but this was a very easy nice hike to do and gives you a great view of bozeman! it's a little less crowded than the M hike too which is nice!

Nice hike but beware, there are many dogs on the trail hiking far out in front of their irresponsible owners who are uninterested in controlling their four legged hiking partners. Rules state that pets must be leashed or under DIRECT voice control, please adhere.

Walked 3 miles in and then back. Good steady uphill pull. Recent snow/rain made for a bit of mud but not bad. I wouldn't classify this as grueling but it might be if you are not a regular exerciser.

Perfect little park to take kids on their bikes or a nice lunchtime walk with picnic benches all around. A couple fenced off leash areas for your dogs. Exactly .95 miles.

Saw a bear and two moose, quick, easy and local hike!

They made a real nice walkable trail. They could have made it shorter but...two trails! I'm starting to be amazed by people who make trail. That bridge?! That bridge?! That was amazing.

I've hiked this trail many times. The creek crossings are a bit dangerous if you go in early spring and the horse flies come out in late August but the butterflies, wildflowers and views are beautiful.

Beautiful trial, but make sure you come prepared if you're out of shape- like me. My only complaint is hat it had a lot of loose, large rocks on the main trail (especially towards the top). I rolled my ankle on the way down.

This trail was beautiful but I would classify it more towards the MODERATE level for a hike! There is a lot of uphill and some rocky areas. More shade than most hikes in the Bozeman area. Definitely has great scenery just be prepared for uphill climbs

a nice shorter trail run challenge. pretty at the top and the trails are in pretty good shape. my only complaint is it's a little barren in some places and you just bake in the sun. if that doesn't bother you then it's 5 stars

Fun, doable and social. Plenty of bikes in addition to hikers

I've done this hike up to Saddle Peak a few times, a great day hike.

Beautiful hike! Although my tracking said I walked more like 6 miles than the 4.4 it says it was a great time!

Great trail, especially for beginners.
The trail is clean, easy to follow, and the views are beautiful.
Plenty of shaded parts for those hot days.

Pretty scenery. Dog owners need to cleanup and take it with them.
