Fairy Lake Trail

Bozeman, MT 59715

Fairy Lake trailhead allows you to bag the two highest peaks in the Bridgers in 6 miles (driving 50 min, 26 miles). 19 miles up Bridger Canyon Rd, left just past Battle Ridge summit, then 7 miles more on decent gravel road. Rustic campground near the trailhead. Trailhead is at the parking area above the campground. Up rocky cirque to a saddle (900’ in 1.5 miles). Trail forks several times but always rejoins itself. Lots of switchbacks on a solidly rocky, shale trail. At the saddle go right less than a mile (500’) to Hardscrabble (9,300’), quite difficult but not technical. Left 1.5 miles (600’) to Sacajawea (9,400’), good trail. Be careful to initially stay left on the ridge and not go down the Foothills Trail back to the M.
