New Pathway Planned For Bridger Canyon Hikers and Bikers

The “M” Trail and the Drinking Horse Trail attract a host of daily hikers, trail runners, bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Bridger Canyon Road is also one of the more beautiful and fun biking roads in the area. As the area’s popularity has increased, Bridger Canyon road has seen a lot of pedestrian and recreational traffic.

Currently, only a small shoulder exists for people who want to get to the trail heads without having to drive. Using a previously passed bond, the city will construct a new pathway from Bozeman that will go to both the "M" and Drinking Horse Trails. The pathway will be fully separated from Bridger Canyon Road and is expected to cost $4 million.

The path will be asphalt to allow bikers to also use the path with ease. It will connect into city trails at Story Mill Road and then extend out to both the “M” and Drinking Horse. The city will also look into creating an under path  to connect the two trails (on opposite sides of the road) without having to cross Bridger Canyon Road.

The city will need to get 5 homeowners on board to allow room for the pathway.

Bozeman continues to focus on its resident’s safety, while also finding ways to provide access to the outdoors, without the need for a car. Bozeman becomes more convenient to its residents everyday. Its no wonder that more and more people continue to move to the greater Bozeman area.
