Nice short hike. Picnic tables etc. at trailhead parking lot. Very pretty. Good hike for families and people who have difficulties on unimproved trails.

Great place to dump your trash. Anita is always there to clean it up. Be sure to give her a wave as you walk past her house on the way to the falls. I like to leave plastic water bottles along the way so they're there for the next time I come through.

Did this hike on the 4th of July, very rewarding! Narrow so if taking young kids I would plan to pack them

This is a very good hike. We had just gotten off the plane when we hiked it so it seemed harder than it really is. I loved how there were lookout points along the way that you could stop at and just take in the view. The changes in terrain were also very cool. Of course the finale at the top was amazing. The view and the rock formations up there are definitely worth sticking it out.

Such a stunning view at the top! It’s absolutely worth the trip up!

I love this hike. It is shaded a loop is always nice to do and I find it very relaxing. A little secret is of you park in the parking lot you have about a mile hike across a field before you even get to the trail head. So many people turn in by the homes and Park alongside the road and start right at the trailhead!
If I had to post a negative some times bikers come flying down the trail with not a lot of regard for others but usually they are decent. Try it! I’m sure it will become a favorite!! This is probably my favorite hike in Bozeman

Great trail for a run! Beautiful views of the Bridgers and some views of town as well.

Its truly 5 miles even.... great views, great hike.....

Great hike to the falls. Past the falls gets steep and rocky as you head up to the lake. Definitely will be back for an overnight.

Short. Asphalt surface. Nice waterfall!

Yes.
Pine Creek Falls are well worth the hike although as the property owner of the property the access road passes through to get to the falls this attraction can be a pain in the butt.
Hikers/tourists need to take care to read the posted signs & quit trespassing on private property.
Forest service public ground does not start until you cross the final cattle guard!!
The littering discarded on our place is also an issue. People stop throwing your trash out your windows. I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate me throwing my trash in your yard so don't do it in mine!!
If you don't like my comments then start respecting private property & I won't have to address these issues like I shouldn't have to anyway. RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE & THEIR PROPERTY OR STAY AWAY!

Nice steady climb up following switchbacks. Somewhat rocky making for loose footing at times. Views and several lookout areas on way up. At top, a neat natural rocky arch. Had lunch with quite aggressive chipmunks. No fear. Hikers in front of us encountered a deer. At bottom visit stream across from parking area to cool off.

Great workout hike with steady uphill throughout. Saw this trail mentioned as a great kids hike in a local magazine but after hiking it, I would hesitate to bring children here. It is challenging enough you might end up carrying them but more because of the steep drop offs and narrow trails throughout. Keep a close eye on kids if you do bring them. Amazing views at the top.

Fairly easy and mostly shaded walk. Uneven path with bolders and tree roots that might trip up young ones. The access road is paved and narrow. Would walk it again.

beautiful hike.lots of water in the creek.huckleberru season.

Nice walk up and away from downtown Bozeman.

Nice walking path off the streets of downtown Bozeman. Nice view at the top of well paved and well traveled trail.

Great views the whole way up and down, trail is very well kept. Definitely a climb but the view is worth it

I didn’t actually love that it was paved, but it would be great for families with kids and strollers. The waterfall at the end was very pretty and offers the chance to scramble up to get closer to the foot of it if you choose.

Pretty breathtaking scene at the end of this trail. While this trail is short and busy, this is definitely worth your time if you are visiting for a short time or if accessibility is a high priority. Great hike to take newcomers and visitors to town on.

Nice views from the top and a good workout, though overall I was a little less impressed with the trail as a whole. While th views up top are nice, I do feel that I've been on better trails in the area.

I've done all the variations of this trail and it is a nice one to get some miles under your feet and a nice uphill workout whether hiking or running. The trail is a little "short" if you are looking for something longer. Nice before work, lunchtime, or after work hiking or running trail. Peaceful and quiet both of the times I've been.

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.

Beautiful!

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.

lots of people and dogs off leashes.
