One of the closest and most popular trails near Bozeman. Gain elevation quickly as you dive in and out of gullies on the west side of the Bridgers eventually gaining a ridge with superb views of the Gallatin valley. The trail becomes rockier and lurches upward above this point before intersecting with the Bridger Foothills trail. Sypes Canyon is subject to the Trail time share plan which prohibits mountain biking on Saturdays from June 16- Sept 5.
