Blodgett Canyon is a 26 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Hamilton, Montana that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and horses and is best used from July until September. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
The trail follows Blodgett creek as it winds down the canyon. I hiked about three miles out and back. The timber isn't thick and burn patches are evident. All the better for your viewing pleasure. The northern side of the canyon has several steep faces that look pretty sick. Very photogenic the whole way. Still a lot of slushy but deep snow hanging around in early March. Excited to hike all the way to the lake.
absolutely stunning and amazing views. very busy when I went but beautiful. bring bear spray.
Iconic Montana views with so little effort...it shouldn't be this easy
Only hiked about 4 miles in on a day hike. Very fun. Find a place along the way to cool off your feet in the river and read a book.
Absolutely beautiful!!! Easy hike with great views of the canyon and the creek is spectacular, need to fish it
