Kyle K. on Blackmore Trail to Blackmore Lake
An awesome hike rewarding its conquerors with stunning views from all directions. Shuffled up there after my noon class on a Friday to watch the sunset and it did not disappoint.
Kyle K. on Baldy Peak Summit
A fun trail going up with great views of, both, the valley and the expansive country going east. There are steeper inclines in multiple areas which make the descent more of a controlled fall than a leisurely down-mountain stroll. A good one to check off the list.
Kyle K. on Sypes Canyon
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.
Kyle K. on M Trail
An iconic trail for the Bozeman community, especially for those who are students. A short trek, either straight up, or on switch back trails. Synonymous to Drinking Horse Trail in difficulty and length.
Kyle K. on Drinking Horse Trail
A fine short trek. Good for an evening walk or to just stretch your legs.
So we had to park in the lower parking lot due to the snow, which made this a lot longer of a hike! It was about 12-13 miles round trip. We could not believe it when we saw you could drive right up to the lake in the summer.. haha. The trailhead sign was buried in snow. It was HARD in the snow, not to mention it started blizzarding when we got to the frozen lake. Made for a fun adventure though & those mountain views at the top were amazing, plus the absolute silence. I can't imagine how it would look when it was a clear day!! If your feeling adventurous, go for it in the Winter :)
Amy L. on Sypes Canyon
Great even in the rain! Pretty slushy with residual snow on part of the trail
