Bear Trap Canyon, Day Hikes in Bozeman, Robert Stone

Bear Trap Canyon is a spectacular drainage encompassing 6,000 acres in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness within the Madison Range. The Madison River, its headwaters in Yellowstone National Park, rages throught the remote, roadless canyon for 9 miles, from Ennis Lake to the Madison River Bridge. 

Directions: From Bozeman, drive 9 miles west to Four Corners on Hwy. 191. Continue 20.7 miles west on Hwy. 84 to Bear Trap Road on the left. It is located by the Bear Trap recreational area sign, just before the bridge crossing of the Madison River. Turn left and drive on the gravel road 3.2 miles along the east of the river. The trailhead parking area is at the end of the road.
