A fun hike up the west side of the Bridger Range. Easy going most of the way; difficulty increases during the last leg. Provides good views of the valley offering new perspectives.
Great even in the rain! Pretty slushy with residual snow on part of the trail
Great trail through the canyon. At the end you are treated to beautiful views of the Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley.
Once you get to the ridge, it's amazing! Great change in terrain as well. The downhill is excellent when the trail isn't clogged with pedestrians.
This trail was the perfect length and difficulty for these two hikers! We saw such a variety of flora and even some fauna. We got an early start to avoid the worst sun. We chatted with nice people along the way and made it in and out in about 3 hours!
Once you get high enough for the trees to thin out the views of the Bozeman valley are very nice. On our hike we met a nice couple at the summit and had a good long chat on the way down.
A lot of traffic on a thin trail but lovely variety of landscape especially forest with lots of plants, flowers, trees and birds as you incline. The view from the top is pretty great.
great views of the valley at the end of the trail. lot of fun!
