Love The M! Great view of Missoula!

Trail is in great shape, still was quite a bit of snow. But well worth it!

Need 4wheel drive to get up to trailhead. So beautiful and the water is so clear. Went Apr and still lots of snow.

Beautiful loop, my pup had a blast! still quite a bit of snow so be prepared.

Deadfall. Depressing views.

This is trail is still very snowy with bad ice in some spots. I highly recommend wearing snow cleats. I didn’t bring cleats so I had to turn around at the switchback because I couldn’t even make it up that without falling. Will try again in a month or so.

Totally love this hike. By far my favorite..

Great view, multiple rest spots to accommodate all level hikers!

A nice outing, but the majority of the trees have been burned because of the fire last year. But our dogs loved the hike!

I hike up here at least one a month and it's a great view of Missoula.

So, it was not too smooth in March, but it was a great view regardless and an intense workout.

Beautiful trail, steep incline at first, but levels out through the canyon, which is breathtaking and impressively tall-walled! Young pine forest surroundings. A friend I visited at Missoula State took me climbing here for my first time and it is a memory I will cherish forever.

I would rate this as a moderate to easy walk. The day I went there was lots of foot traffic and I was the only person who didn’t have a dog with them

live right below it, it's a 10-20 minute drive to the trail head from my house love the views but be warned if you go to the small lake below make sure you have plenty of water it takes a good hour to two hours just to get down plus an additional 3 to get up due to the steepness of the back side was driving in arlee and you could just see how steep the other side was compared to the ninemile side definitely a must do if you like to hike.

Love this hike. Beautiful area. I wish people were better about cleaning up after their dogs.

Beautiful trail, RD to trail head was in great shape. The trail is icey, I suggest micro spikes. If your GPS tries to take you to Jackson LN it's incorrect.

Lovely and do-able even this late in November.

Great trail. Tons of great views and easy scrambling. When we went the creek was out of its banks so we had to take a few detours. About 6 miles in the canyon narrows and is more wooded. Tons of great rapids and scenery.

Roads solid ice, narrow, with cliffs had to bale on it today. Will return in the spring.

Absolutely breathtaking. Simple hike.

Nice quick hike to the “M” with a nice city view!!

Beautiful hike and great for the dogs!

October 2017. Lots of down trees, due to the summers fire. Very interesting to hike through the burned areas - some places it burned very hot and there’s nothing left. Some fire retardant still around, which make some areas look like hiking through. a technicolor dreamscape. It’s a different experience than usual, but very interesting. The fallen trees make it more challenging and slower than usual.

Spectacular view :)

Although we didnt make it to the falls (maybe half way there) it was beautiful along the way! definitely will be returning to finish

Trail i frequent the most, easy and beautiful if you make to to the summit!

Great hike but wouldn't categorize it as hard! It has some steep terrain but most of it is fairly flat, with great views!
