At the mouth of Bridger Canyon is the landmark “M” created by Montana State University students in 1915. There are two routes to the M from the trailhead. For a steep and direct ascent, continue straight/right at the first junction; for an easier and longer ascent, take a hard left. This trail is close to Bozeman and very popular.

Follow Rouse Ave. north (becomes Bridger Canyon Rd.). After a few miles, turn left into the signed parking area, which is just before a narrow constriction between the Bridgers and the Story Hills.
