The people have spoken…and the trail of the week is Triple Tree!
This 5.4 mile round-trip trail has been a favorite in Bozeman for over 20 years. Far enough outside of town where you can get some peace and quiet, but close enough that you can squeeze in a hike after work, this trail passes through Triple Tree Ranch before turning onto state land.
Besides the spectacular view from the top, the trail passes through some prime wildlife habitat, so keep your eye out for deer, elk, bear, and even mountain lions! This is also one of the reasons dogs must be kept on leash when on the trail, disturbances can cause this amazing wildlife to no longer inhabit the area.
The new Painted Hills Gap trail will connect Painted Hills to Triple Tree, providing an additional 1.9 miles of trail! This is expected to be put in place at the end of August 2018.
