The only problem with hiking in Bozeman is trying to figure out where to head to! Surrounded by many magnificent mountain ranges, you can take off in any direction and find excellent trails. A local favorite, the hike to the concrete M on Baldy Mountain is a must-do for any visitor. Created in 1915 by Montana State University students, the trail will take you through a beautiful juniper forest to the mouth of Bridger Canyon. Another popular hiking destination, Hyalite Drainage Recreational Area provides endless trails to lakes, streams, waterfalls, 10,000 foot peaks and cabins.
