An awesome hike rewarding its conquerors with stunning views from all directions. Shuffled up there after my noon class on a Friday to watch the sunset and it did not disappoint.

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!

Definitely wouldn't consider this an easy trail.. easy to the lake but man its tough up to the peak! pretty the whole way though, worth the hike!

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

The hike to the lake is fairly easy and would make a great day hike for just about anyone and is also a beautiful resting spot. Getting to the peak is much more challenging. I was not accustomed to the altitude and was breathing heavy most of the way! The two sets of main switch backs were very difficult but getting to the peak is very rewarding and well worth it! Took me just over 3 hours to get to the peak and about 2.5 to get back to the trail head.

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.

If you're looking for a challenging day hike near Bozeman, Blackmore Peak is a great option. The trail starts out fairly easy through thick conifer forest and winds down to Blackmore Lake where you will get a nice view of the peak you’re about to ascend.

the lake is easy to get to and a great pitstop for dogs before continuing to the peak! five star rating is for the peak- it is a must! so beautiful and green- we saw mountain goats and the 360 degree views are amazing. about 14-15 miles round trip, but moderate difficulty as far as peaks go.

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!
