Despite referring to three different sources including the National Geographic map of the area, AllTrails, and the Bozeman Hikes book, there seems to be some confusion on the distance of this hike. While I did not turn on my GPS for this hike, my general 20 minutes/mile seemed accurate with the 4 mile sign to the trail head of Truman when I reached the junction up top. I assume there was some trail maintenance which rerouted the trail and added some length. That, and about 3 miles in, I noticed some pretty recent trail work done for some pretty nice mountain biking trail. That said, the distance reported by many sources is off so do allow yourself some additional time to complete this trail if you'd like to do it all. Perfect trail for a hot day and super quiet and peaceful!
