A great hike starting from just a few minutes north of Bozeman. Winds its way up Sypes Canyon for a few miles then intersects the Bridger Foothills trail, where you can go right and in 4 miles be at the "M" (pictures on my main Bozeman page) or left to Middle Cottonwood Canyon. Or, keep going straight and head towards Baldy Mountain. The further you go the better the view gets. Although I haven't taken this route to the top of Baly Mountain, seems like it would be a quick rest of the way up. If you're into climbing, there may be some rocks of interest futher up the trail. Whatever you like to hike in!
