Great hike to the summit - even over the slushy trail! Fun folks to chat with & friendly canines abound.

Nothing too awe inspiring but a great place to let the pup run around and enough crisscrossing trails to keep you entertained, spent about 2 hours there and had a great time.

Hiked on an overcast mid-October Sunday with the 9yr old kiddo and the pooch. It was beautiful.

It's always a great place to see the whole valley!

I do a mix of hiking and trail running on "the M." Basically, it's a trail of switchbacks. It's do-able for most people, as there are benches for rest every few switchbacks. You could take your time and just enjoy the views of Missoula (which are spectacular!), or hike faster/run it for more intense cardio exercise.

Steep hike but gives you a great view over Missoula and the mountains surrounding. Saw a couple deer grazing by the trail on the way up. Fast hike that starts on University of Montana's campus.

doesn't take as long as you think it would. very steep in certain areas n can be a killer work out but there are benches at every other corner to stop and take a few breaths. lots of friendly people

Tough, quick hike. Great sunset views of Missoula Valley. Will be doing it again soon.

Tough but short hike! Has 13 switchbacks, the first being the hardest in my opinion, but don't quit on it.... the view at the top is awesome!
