Takes 1-2 hours depending on how much time you spend at the top. It's a nice less popular alternative to the M with a great view of Bozeman

Great spring hike!! The first hike I do every spring..

One of the best payoffs for such a short hike. It is really steep but worth every step!

Remember, despite what the last review says there are no grizzlies in the Bridgers! Lots of black bears (sometimes brown in color) but no grizzlies.

Great shorter hike that's conveniently close to town. Has some good views. A little steep

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.

Pretty great hike! My 9 year old daughter hiked this trail with me. I was surprised considering the grade and 7.1 mile out and back! This is a beautiful hike with a pretty little lake at the top! Bring bear spray. Wear layers and have a water pack if you’re going in the warm weather and of course, snacks. You’ll want to hang out at the top for a while and enjoy the view! Wild flowers galore. Very pretty hike!

Not a super hard hike and the view is amazing! Would recommend maybe having yaktrax or something for the winter as it was a bit slippery. One thing to note is the road is closed to get to the trailhead in the winter so you have to walk an additional mile or so to get there.

Hiked this a long time ago, in August 2000. I had to stop to rest a little after the switchbacks, but the view of the Bridger Range and Bozeman in the distance was so so beautiful and worth every drop of sweat. Saw Rocky Mountain Goats at the summit, just below me. Grizzly ran in front of my car as I was leaving the parking area.

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

Superb views but steep climb and slippery in winter

Such a beautiful hike with amazing views throughout. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

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.

On 24 Nov road conditions to access trailhead were treacherous with snow & ice. Even with four wheel drive we turned around after 2 miles. I did the hike in August and it's fantastic - highly recommend. But this time of year access is difficult.

First off, I’m going to start by saying that the way to Sacajawea Peak also leads you to Fairy Lake. So you can see and do both, or you could even combine the two trails into one super long one.

Second, this trail is super fun! But let me just put this out there, I’m super fit, going hiking often, and boy!! It was some work to get up to the top. I have a bad right knee, and was really feeling it once I was almost to the top, as the trail is super steep.

Thirdly, I would definitely recommend this to anyone if you love hiking! The views are amazing!

So much fun!!! The view was well worth it!!

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

We did this trail years ago absolutely beautiful! Saw a mother moose and her calf

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.

Lake is frozen over as of 10/15/17. Drive up wasn't bad but there are no signs until the top and might need 4wd in certain spots.

Lake is frozen over as of 10/15/17. Road up to lake is nice however you need 4wd in some spots and there are no signs until you're right at the spot to park at the top of the mountain.

10 years since my last trip to Bozeman, MT. This trail is just as I remember. Excellent climb with the chance to see some goats (summer). I would highly recommend.

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.

A gorgeous hike. Definitely challenging (especially if you're not used to higher altitudes...which as a NY native I am not!) Parts of the trail are really narrow so be careful. The views overall were beautiful and the view from the top was totally epic! I definitely recommend. ☺️

Amazing trail, unfortunately it's very popular and lots of traffic but we have been able to see mountain goats each time, up close and personal as well. worth the difficulty!
