Need to go  Map

Very nice trail! I summitted Saddle Peak from this, which I would highly recommend. The trail never really ends and continues to Saddle Peak, so those who don't want to summit will have to find their own spot to turn around.

Gorgeous views and trail. I enjoy tackling the loop counterclockwise personally. Generally this trail loads up with tons of people: hikers, bikers, runners, families, and dogs. It can be a lot at times but I've certainly been able to enjoy the trail mostly to myself from time to time if I'm lucky.

Challenging uphill climbs and loose sandy gravel on the downhill stretches. Needs good grippy tires during the drier weeks. A great trail for hikers too. Good view at the top.

loved it!!

Great hike! This is also a good trail for mountain biking. Lots of shade on the way up. You should do it :)

this is one of my favorite trails in Bozeman. It's great for dogs there's a lot of shade the views from the top are spectacular. And as On Any Trail you always meet lots of amazing people. lots of wildflowers too.

Beautiful trail! First mile thru rolling fields, then a bit of a climb to the top. At the base of the loop, if you go right there are multiple switch backs as you climb. The left side is more of a straight climb. I found the climb to be more moderate than easy!

Beautiful trail!! Flowers are abundant on the top and so fragrant!! My only complaint was the amount of full poop bags that were just left on the trail, doesn't that defeat the purpose of having one? Pack it in, you MUST pack it out, come on people!!

This is a wonderful hike. Beautiful alpine meadows. Crystal springs and finally grand mountain views. But if the M trail is rated moderate, how can a ten miler with close to 3500 feet gain fall into the same category?
Please be sure to review only if you've completed the trail or specify otherwise.

Triple tree is quick and easy with great views of the Bridgers and the valley. Love this little hike, it’ll always be a favorite. Watch out for mud in the spring.

Went early June. Really beautiful, wet, chilly, and fun. Pretty decent conditions for running. Would recommend a sweater for the top if you travel in the morning

I love this trail and probably hike and trail run it dozens of times in a year. I have done completed it in every season in snow, rain, hail and sunshine. It is a great trail for hikers, bikers and runners. The trail itself is beautiful but the downside is how close it is to the Triple Tree subdivision, which makes the first mile and half seem like not a real hike. If you have more time, park at the main trailhead parking lot. If you are in a rush, there is a limited parking area up the hill that will cut off a mile of the complete trail. Excellent views of the Gallatin Valley and easy hike to do.

beautiful hiking. lots of water for the dogs

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
