Cha-paa-qn holds a special place in the heart of Missoulians. Its iconic pointy tip dominates the western skyline. It’s also a fairly attainable peak to stand upon, as a road gets you close to the top, though the walk is no slouch. The trail nrises 2,269 feet on its journey to the summit. The last 0.3 mile is a legitimate rock scramble, though the views are rewarding if you want to turn around here. The view from the top is exceptional. The 360-degreee panorama includes several mountain ranges and valleys, including great views of the Mission Mountains.
