Beautiful view at the top. The trail was easy to see in the snow. Beautiful rock formations as well!

Decent trail with a great view of Bozeman. Don't go if windy though, it's pretty open at the top and will cut you up.

Beautiful fall colors throughout the lower half of the trail and sweeping valley views at the top. Perfect Sunday afternoon hike.

This is one of my new favorites. It's completely worth it to get to the top of the canyon, you won't be disappointed by the amazing views. Even though I've fallen a bit out of shape the elevation gain is manageable with minor huffing and puffing and I was still feeling great at the top. Took about four hours before I was back in my car

The terrain changes throughout the hike. Fairly easy, and you're able to connect with other trails at the top. Close to town. One of my regular go-to hikes.
