This loop seems to have been developed and none existent.

360 degree views - stunning. Definitely need bear spray / be prepared and educated.

Did not find the shorter loop and ended up on the bigger 12 mile hike, so had to turn around. Really beautiful, but wish we could have found the 2.3 mile loop. Encountered dirt bikes, horseback riders (from Jake’s Ranch), and hikers. All very polite of each other’s space. Gorgeous views!! Only giving 4 stars because we couldn’t find the shorter hike.

This is a wonderful trail to the top of Cinnamon Mtn, which has excellent views on a clear day. While this trail can be hiked in the early season, it is best after the snow has melted on the upper sections and the lower part of the trail has had a chance to dry. As of Aug 4, 2018, the trail was in excellent shape and all but the newest deadfall had been cleared from the trail. Wildflowers are abundant in many areas.

noone on the trail. start early as it will get hot. steady uphill the whole trail. you can apparently rent the cabin up at the top. the last 100 yards are steep. trail is across from storm castle. there's a campground just past the trailhead too. no water source on trail.

hiked 7/4/18 trail is muddy in some places but very torn up at the beginning due to horses. at the sign go right. trail gets steeper but easier terrain. the trail will open up and there's amazing views for the last mile. it's about 1.5 after you turn right. worth doing absolutely gorgeous and delicious cinnamon at the top.

Fantastic trail, beautiful falls. Well maintained, nothing crazy with the elevation.

great short hike in the winter! beautiful weather today. freshly flocked trees and everything

Nice hike; could have better trail markings. AllTrails said it's a 12 mile hike, a trail map we had said 4, no real distinction on the signs that we could tell. The horse flies were terrible so BRING BUG SPRAY

This was a great trail! I went in late April and there was still a lot of snow on top (waist deep). A great hike with a ton of amazing views.

Steady climb. It does get steep later on, but the views are beautiful.

Easy trail to warm your legs up on for bigger hikes, go for a run on, or just enjoy a nice view. Can make this trail as long as you want with all the connecting trails.
Signage isn't the best on the connecting trails.

Awesome trail! I will definitely return to do this on a sunny day so I can take full advantage of the views from the top. I went by myself, so I carried a bear bell as well as bear spray so I could make some noise because of the grizzlies. I didn't see any bears, but I did see signs of them. Overall not too difficult, and the distance is well worth the view. Amazing wildflowers as well.

Went snowshoeing here and they have some nice trails around the ranch. Not too difficult but with great views.

My family and I hike here often. It's an easy trail and very enjoyable. Too much traffic for our taste, so we try to hit it during the off seasons. Great views and places to picnic.

Nice, hard pack trail - nothing technical. But it does climb at a steady rate the whole way up. Great fall colors!

Solid chill hike that surrounds the explorers with the Gallatin mountains around Big Sky. We had to dodge some horse poo, but I'd recommend just sucking it up and treating it as a metaphor for life.

What a magnificent easy to moderate hike that offers lush mountain vegetation along a beautiful creek. We were able to see a magnificent swan floating around the small swampy lake. The trail takes you up to a beautiful tall Pine forest. Absolutely magnificent

Great hike! Not too much foot traffic and the view at the top is spectacular. You do gain quite a bit of elevation but it's not too overwhelming.

Nice trail, a bit rocky in places but we'll worth the effort. Only saw two others on trail today. Push through the double track in the middle, at the end is nice single track. could not finish after 2 hrs of steady riding. Spectacular scenery!

A favorite - great for family and dogs
