Great hike, perfect for the little ones too. We went up the hard way and down the easy way. I did have to carry my daughter on my shoulders on the way down as she was pretty pooped (first hike of the season). We will definitely do this one again, short and sweet.

Great Hike, Get ready to work your butt and thighs out. I did this hike with a 25 lb, 2 year old on my back. There is little even ground so the trail inclines a majority of the hike. Has great views along the trail and at the top. From the top there is an amazing view of the valley and of Bozeman. Get ready to just park at the overflow parking lot. The parking lot at the trail head only fits 4 or 5 cars. The extra walk isn't much, so save the time. Also there are many bikers on the trail keep your eyes and ears open and be ready to jump out of the way.

Really nice trail that would be awesome for waking, and probably awesome for mountain biking if you were actually in good shape and knew what you were doing :-) it was definitely a tough ride up for me, but a really great workout. Made it 5.1 miles up and it looked like it turned into a mostly snowy path, so we turned around there. There were a few snowy sections, but nothing unmanageable.

Awesome hike! Great mixture of incline, decline and flat trail, shaded and out in the sun, gorgeous views right from the start. We meandered and took pictures and it only took us 2 1/2 hours. Good little workout without being crazy strenuous. Definitely give it a try!
