On 24 Nov road conditions to access trailhead were treacherous with snow & ice. Even with four wheel drive we turned around after 2 miles. I did the hike in August and it's fantastic - highly recommend. But this time of year access is difficult.

First off, I’m going to start by saying that the way to Sacajawea Peak also leads you to Fairy Lake. So you can see and do both, or you could even combine the two trails into one super long one.

Second, this trail is super fun! But let me just put this out there, I’m super fit, going hiking often, and boy!! It was some work to get up to the top. I have a bad right knee, and was really feeling it once I was almost to the top, as the trail is super steep.

Thirdly, I would definitely recommend this to anyone if you love hiking! The views are amazing!

10 years since my last trip to Bozeman, MT. This trail is just as I remember. Excellent climb with the chance to see some goats (summer). I would highly recommend.

Amazing trail, unfortunately it's very popular and lots of traffic but we have been able to see mountain goats each time, up close and personal as well. worth the difficulty!

Awesome hike! it will definitely give you a run for your money but it's worth it. it took just under 2 hours to reach the summit and that was with plenty of breaks for pictures. One of the most amazing views you could ask for.

I wouldn't recommend if you want to avoid the crowds, but the views are well worth it. Summited her 10 times!

Outstanding hike with awesome views. There were a few rocky parts that were a little tricky, but overall very manageable. The mountain goats at the top were a real treat. Highly recommend.

Awesome! I would qualify this hike as difficult because of the snow fields (July 1st) and occasional need to use your hands to get up the steep parts. Seems like there are many switchback options and it's occasionally tough to follow the trail. The views from the Bridger Divide are fantastic. Be on the lookout for mountain goats!

Fun hike, great views. The app says dogs on leashes, there were plenty running around loose and thankfully all were friendly.

It was a little rough getting up and there were some confusing switchbacks. Given that, it's a beautiful hike and totally worth the trek up. Be prepared, it's super windy on top!

Pros: Spectacular views from lower saddle to top, small summer glaciers, fragrant Fraser forests, views of Crazy Mountains, Tobacco Root Mountains, and Gallatin Range in distance on clear days.
Cons: Lots of switchbacks, some confusing below the pass, no water above Fairy Lake, windy from the pass upwards.
Recommendations: Trekking poles, extra water, windbreaker, baselayers.

Loved this trail. The views are stunning. Prepare for strong winds when you reach the top. Trail is narrow and switchbacks nicely to handle the grade.

November 5th: the trail at the top was covered in ice so climbing directly through the loose rocks seemed much easier at the time. The view was spectacular!! But the hike was really rough and I will definitely be sore tomorrow.

Good hike but it's either deadly winds at the top or nothing and I keep getting unlucky. the hike around the other side is also very gorgeous.
