Nice hike. Great trailhead with parking and signage. Trail markings at every intersection. The top half is much prettier. Great views

Coming up the back side of Mount Sentinel was beautiful and barely any people. The lupine is in full bloom. Nice and shaded until you get over the top then full sun and windy.

Brought 4 young kids in June and so green. Beautiful thru the woods. Looks fun to bike. Just did mini ridge and turned back on Emmett’s (E-trail on sign). 90 min and 2 1/4 mile

Lots of up and down! Wear sturdy shoes. Dog did well. Bring your bug spray! The hike is worth the view! Feet will get wet depending how high the water is

Very nice short family trail to walk, run, or bike. Pet friendly. Sweet creek and several benches to rest along the way.

Unfortunately, this trail is a nightmare. It’s poorly marked and confusing. Muddy in several areas but even more of an issue were the trees (there were a lot) that had fallen on the trail. Although I was tracking my hike with the All Trails map, I somehow ended up so far off the red trail that I was lost and had to find my own way back. There were signs in places, but these seem more directional for the skiers.

A little muddy at the beginning but the flowers and views are worth it, especially when you go all the way to the old logging road.

love! the trail was in great condition and provides lots of shade!

Super easy, nice walk through the trees. Fairly busy with walkers, runners and bikes.

2x. Started tracking about 25’ vertical late, about 125’ altogether.

It’s an awesome trail for those who want to see a better view of Missoula and of the University of Montana! The switchbacks and verticalness of the trail might deter some but the view is worth it for those who make it to the top.

Parking is a little sketchy but this was a beautiful hike through the trees.

Went to the trailhead to roam around mostly because the trail we wanted to hit today had full parking. This area was a pleasant surprise! There is high visibility due to low tree density but the trees are super high so there is still great shade. It was a great experience, and I plan to come back out to do some more exploring on a bike.

Top 2x, plus over halfway

Nice hike right outside Bozeman with lots of little different options! Had the whole trail to ourselves on 6/14 because of the rain probably!

Trail is still snowy ... had to be close to caves maybe a 1/2 mile away. Turned back because we couldn’t find the trail anymore and we were falling waist deep in the snow. Super slick coming back down with so many people coming up. 6/13/2020

4 sets last set was the most Windy. 3x from Yoga Training (Touch) Home Studio and Personalized Retreat and 1x from juncture of 1906 Trail

Power line is steep and straight uphill the whole way. Take 1906 for easier route.

We tried it today, June 7, 2020. We made it up 1500 feet, falling 700 feet short of the caves due to snow. It's not safe to pass. Wait until it melts. Still, great views of the mountains and lake.

Well maintained. Not even muddy after a heavy rain. Beautiful foothills overlooking Bozeman.
