HikingGreat!

Easy hike, perfect if all you want to do is “take a nature walk” if fishing, not that many spots, but you’ll find a couple of good spots.

Moderate terrain with minor elevation changes . Creek is in ear shot the whole time, but visible only about an 1/8th of the time. Mountain bikes on trail today and there was plenty of width for them to pass without leaving the trail (at the 2nd half or lower part of the trail).

Easy trail to hike in the summer - no big views but a nice meadow and walk by the river. Could be good cross country skiing or snow shoeing in the snow.

Hiked today with my wife, two kids (10 & 7), and a small dog. We had a great experience. Perfect family hike. Dog friendly trail. Fun boulders to climb on. Beautiful sounds of the river, sunlight through the trees. Nice views of the valley. Lots of wild flowers in bloom. We did notice beer droppings on the trail.

Hiked 4/25 in the AM, did the second loop. Hike was very doable even with snow. Part of the trail is packed, probably from XC skiing, so you're able to walk mostly on top of the snow without too much trouble. But there are deep spots to posthole in the snow.

Cross-country skiing

Excellent XC skiing Feb 16, 2020. As others mentioned the parking lot gets full easily and there is decently high use of the trail. We skied the No. 2 loop with the pup. The uphill was fairly intense when we couldn't get into fresh snow (due to being so heavily packed and slick). But the creek side was absolutely gorgeous and provided some amazing skiing. Everyone on the trail (skiers, snowshoers and hikers) were courteous and friendly. Most folks had dogs with them (all of the dogs were friendly and well behaved). Can't wait to go again!

Absolutely beautiful and loved our time. Only downside for some would be not enough parking and trail is heavily trafficked. We spent much of our time off the beaten path exploring the creek. Was one of my favorite days since moving to Montana.

Amazing trail for snowshoeing! I went on February 9, 2020 and it was a gorgeous day. I brought my pups and they had a blast. The trail was completely covered in snow. I recommend getting there early as the parking lot was full when we came back.

Easy and fun, especially for my mother who has hip issues. Got a good sense of Custer Naional Forest without going over any passes.

Love Silver Run. It’s a great trail for just about anything and everyone. Excellent for younger kids. In the winter we love to snowshoe up there. And in the summer you will often cross paths with bikers and runners. Just a great trail all around. I’ve had more run-in’s with moose on this trail than anywhere else in the area. So, like always, be aware of your surroundings and enjoy!

Great loop up with an extra arm up to the plateau. The first mile or so is road that can be driven with an AWD/high suspension vehicle (a Nissan Murano made it up there, for reference). Pretty steep inclines after the trail becomes single-track, so it's great for training purposes. The trail sort of disappears shortly after getting up onto the plateau, but there are posts to follow if needed. Creek crossings in late June are all pretty easy, only once did I have to remove my shoes & walk across (maybe 10').

This hike is fine I guess? Nothing terribly exciting to be honest. Nice walk through the woods more than anything else. Still pretty snowy in early May, so relatively slow going.
