Great trail. Couldn't do backside as I felt I needed snowshoes and only had my yak tracks. Can't wait to try in the spring.

A nice pretty easy hike. unfortunately it was very smokey from all the wildfires in the area while we I was there but still beautiful! came 20ft apart with a black bear but made it by with no incidents

loved this hike! the views were amazing and we got to see a moose ☺️. it is quite the hike but it was well worth the views!

On further examination I realized that this the description and map are not the Seeley Creek Ski Trails. The Ski Trails are located on the opposite side of the lake on Morrell Creek Road. Dogs are NOT allowed on the ski trails in winter when skiing and grooming are occurring. Walking and snowshoeing are also not allowed on the trails in winter.

Dogs are not allowed on these trails in winter due to ski grooming. Dogs are OK the rest of the year.

loved this hike. beautiful views. has a real easy incline.

We love this trail... easy and fun for the kids and dogs with great views! Beautiful 15 minute drive from Whitefish.

first mile down hate a mile up on the way home. easy hike trail is easy to lose track of 3/4 of the way thru. good fishing for small trout.

Decided to make an attempt to try this trail since I did not get to do it in the summer. Knew the trail would be icy, but had just purchased some Yaktrac’s, plus the trail had just got four inches of snow on it. Followed one set of tracks in, and not long into the trip, met a young woman coming back down. Trail was steep, but snow helped with traction. Finally got to where the hiker before me turned around and thought, I can’t resist going a little further and break the fresh snow. Glad I did, got to a beautiful view point. Believe I was only two miles into the hike, so it is back on my list for completion. Any day in nature is a good day, so I enjoyed the part I did do.

My favorite run/walk/hike in Billings. I start at Swords Park, circle Skeleton Cliff, go down to Boothill Cemetery, then hike the same route back up. It’s approx. 4 miles round trip. Nice views of Billings. Paved most of the way.

I had a little trouble finding the trail but once found it was beautiful. It was a glorious sunny winters day. The trail was groomed for cross country skiing along the whole length making for easy snowshoeing.

Plenty of berries to eat. Ouzel lake is full of mosquitoes, but the rest of the path was ok. Trail had a lot of horse poop.

most beautiful trail i have ever done!! it is long and gorgeous the entire way. you hike along the hill side, and end up at a warming house! it hailed and snowed on our hike, but id do it again in a heart beat! it was so fun. check the shuttle time at end of trail, so you don't have to walk miles back to parking lot!

I parked at the upper trail access pull off. It's a little over a mile down Evans-Riceville rd. From that parking area, the trail begins to your right as you are facing the canyon. The trail does narrow and the cliffs get close. I don't recommend for small kids and those scared of heights (mom). Great views of Belt Creek and canyon. There is a abandoned train tunnel and bridge a few miles further down than where this app depicts the trail end. I never crossed the river.

Great hike! Some clarifications I didn’t see below:

1) take the “scenic loop” to the left first because it’s super short. Then continue to the “river loop” on the right for the rest of the hike.

2) was accessible still in early January, 2019. Given, the weather is very warm and snow is more melted than not.

Love doing this one when I visit Bozeman. Fun times hanging out by Lava lake!

Easy hike! beautiful view at the end and a fun place to swim or cool off. Young or old this is a good hike for everyone.

Hiked this on 1/5/2018. 46 degrees. Trail was in great shape for January. Campground is closed that trailhead is located in. Have to park at the gate on the other side of the Stillwater River bridge and walk over. Take a left when you get to the campground and follow the road up to the trailhead.

Freaking beautiful- past the overlook

This hike was our first one in Glacier! It was busy but we were there over the 4th of July. Go early regardless during the busy season so parking isn’t an issue. Literally saw people yelling at each other in the parking lot for spots. The snow was still on the mountain on our way up and pretty entertaining as some folks had flip flops on attempting the trek. So wear tennis shoes! Once you get to the overlook YOU GOTTA KEEP GOING! The way down to the lake was beautiful and then once you get there it takes your breath away. Picture perfect views and a fun spot to spend time taking it all in. There had been “grizzly activity” the day before but we didn’t see any ( wheh) but we saw a few sheep, goats, chipmunks and what I think is a marmot!! Way back up is strenuous but doable if you walk or hike often.

Gorgeous lake. Nice hike.

Great views! And even fairly manageable with snow on the ground. Can be slippery on the way back up if it’s icy.

January hike. Very, very icy. We had yaktrax on and had a hard time in places. Good views. Well traveled; saw 4 other groups in 3 hours of hiking. Would be great snowshoe if there was a lot of snow.

Saw rams, mountain goats and moose along the way. No bears though! The glacier is slowly shrinking but still beautiful!

A lovely hike on a bluebird day today January 2. Path is solid underfoot with 12 to 18 inches of snow on both sides. Waterfalls are frozen on top but river is flowing under ice so take care if you tread on the ice. Some amazing lads ice climbing the waterfalls made for super photos. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

We live a couple minutes from this trail and really love it, although parking is limited. If you get there early or keep an eye out for when it’s not so busy, parking is fine.

In the hotter months the trees make for a beautiful, cool, shady start, but eventually you are back in the sun enjoying the valley views and wildflowers,and the view from the Overlook is great too! They are planning to link it up with a new trail from Spanish Peaks road in 2019.

There are no restrooms but dogs are allowed (leashes for the first few hundred yards until you cross a private road). In winter in can be quite slippery coming back down the start of the trail head, but micro spikes or yak tracks help, just take your time. I wouldn’t say it’s that easy, it definitely gets the blood pumping and is a nice run you can do in 45 minutes, with moments to stop and take in the views as you go.
