This is a moderate loop trail in Montana, a heavily-used area just south of Bozeman. A large parking lot leads to a closed road that is used for hiking, biking, and cross country skiing. Bridger Ski Foundation grooms the trail in the winter for classic and skate skiing. Follows a beautiful creek. Moose, black bear and elk sightings possible. Mystic Lake Cabin can be rented for a nominal fee from the National Forest. Fun place to stay in the winter too. There are fish in the lake.

Taking Children

This is a good hike for taking children and dogs. Be aware for mountain bikers.
