Drinking Horse Mountain
This is a easy loop trail to Drinking Horse Mountain in USFS. It's close to town and there's often more than a few cars in the lot, yet Drinking Horse is generally less crowded, and a more well rounded hike, than "The M", its sister hike across the street. Plus, there's a beautiful bridge near the beginning of the hike.
Take the turn off from Bridger Canyon Dr before the road dips down, the gravel parking lot is about 40 feet in elevation below the road. From the parking lot, there's a sign marking the start of the hike. Take this single track for approximately .25 miles and you'll find yourself at the Drinking Horse arch.
Beginning to the left once you hit the loop will save the great view for the top and allow for a gentler grade on the descent.
The uphill at the beginning is mildly steep but less than 0.8 miles. Beware of icy switchbacks in the winter months.
