Sacagawea Peak is the highest point in the Bridger Range. The mountain can be accessed from the west side of the Bridgers, but the most popular route is the trail from the east, starting from the Fairy Lake Campground. The trail climbs passes through a glacial cirque and up to Bridger Divide, between Sacagawea and Hardscrabble; from the divide, the trail winds up to a rocky summit for fantastic views. Local's tip: keep an eye out for mountain goats.

Take Bridger Canyon Rd. / Hwy. 86 north out of Bozeman and turn left at the Y, just past Bohart Ranch. Go up and over Battle Ridge Pass, then hang a left between mile marker 21 and 22 on Fairy Lake Rd. (FSR 74). The road is rough, but people do it in 2WD sedans, so unless it's muddy, no worries. The campground and trailhead are at the end of the road.
