Great easy hike! The trail is wide and well maintained, great for skiing and hiking in the winter.

A fun hike in the snow!

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.

Fun hike, wooden stairs, bridges etc. Pretty good calf workout!

Nice options for different routes and almost entirely forested/in the shade. Long pants are recommended, however, as the path is narrow and there are some stinging nettles.

Very easy and accessible walk by a bubbling creek. Great for children.

Went to the top of Chestnut Mountain versus going to Frog Rock - a great hike with beautiful views of the valley and other mountains, and not too many people. We went up about 4.8 miles to the top of the mountain making the round trip hike a little less than 10 miles. Pack a lunch and enjoy it at the top!

Much steeper than I expected, but well worth the trip! there's a little shack at the top, similar to drinking horse. Loop 3 is a steep descent, but since the trail was dry, it was quite enjoyable. you can reach Levrich Trailhead from here(and we almost did, accidentally)

Went up yesterday it was a little muddy but great!

Beautiful hike be sure to take one of the foot paths off of the trail. They wind through the forest and make for a quick detour and increase the chance of an animal encounter. We ran into a couple of deer while we were there.

I LOVE THIS TRAIL! I'm a student and it being so close to campus is awesome! I go to this trail all the time, sunshine or snow. It does get pretty muddy and slick when it's snowy, but still awesome. I saw a moose once too! Really simple hike and it goes on for at least 3 miles there and back (so 6 total), but I've never actually reached the end of it. GO! You won't regret it!

Great hike with the family. Lots of choices of loops and great views. We enjoyed being under the cover of the pine trees.

Good trail for a short hike. Not very well maintained, definitely wouldn't want to go after it rains. Views from loop 1 are good but I imagine from loop 3 are better. Good signage along the trail to easily track progress.

Decent in-town trail. Wasn't as trafficked as I was expecting, but some bikers definitely ignore the "Slow Down" signs. Some good views of the surrounding ranges though!

Nice hike to get up and out quickly if you don't have much time for a hike but just need to get out. It does loop around and has a map on the trail head to keep you in the right direction. Fun but easy hike. I packed my 25 lb daughter with me on this one and was really nice.

Even with snow it's not to difficult and easy to follow, dog friendly :)

Steeper than expected at first, but overall a nice hike through the woods with pretty views over the valley.

Beautiful trail by the creek. Not too crowded.

I love this trail. It's more of a walking trail than a hiking trail. We love to bike on this trail or walk with our dog. It's shady and beautiful, with a creek alongside the trail. The trail is surrounded by an open garden and in the back of a lot of houses, so you don't get a lot of privacy, and it's often crowded. It's in town, so the convenience factor is nice. I like to take visitors here, as it's good for all ages and really peaceful. Sourdough has a lot of history in Bozeman, so that is cool too.

Great easy trail for little kids or beginners. go in early summer to see beautiful wildflowers! the rock is pretty cool and you're able to climb around and explore. my kids like the sand at the base. we were the only ones on the trail the last time we went, which I really like.
