"Leverich Canyon is a beautiful, narrow canyon south of Bozeman between Sourdough Canyon and Hyalite Canyon. The trail follows Leverich Creek for the first half of the hike. It passes an old miner’s cabin and climbs to the top of the canyon. From the top are great views of Bozeman, Sourdough Canyon and the Bridger Mountains."

The MT Conervation core was working on the trails up here today, It's a really beautiful trail, thats an easy hike with a few steep parts in it. You can hike, or bike, and take the dogs &/or kids.

would not recommend this trip if you are looking for a fun technical ride. Lots of up hill on mostly dirt road and double track. Some uphill on single track but got to the point where it was to steep to climb then very short downhill and back on dirt road for more climbing! When we finally got to leverich canyon for the final downhill we were pretty excited. Trail description made it sound very fast and technical. pretty fast but not very technical and then about halfway down we were supposed to bank hard left past this cabin and finish the ride. Well they had that part of the trail closed off! Since i only had instructions for that part of the trail we had to walk our bikes down the rest of the way which royally sucked until we got back to trailhead. then trail description told us to ride out and take a left on gravel road back to trail head. Well that gravel road is now a paved road! no big deal but how often does this sight update it's trail descriptions? Needless to say not happy with trail or this sights outdated information

Steep climb up to the top. Once there, lovely hilltop meadows overlooking Bozeman to the North. There's an old abandoned gold mine up there and many trail options to explore.
