Sypes Canyon Trail 531 Professional Reviews and Guides
"Sypes Canyon follows a creek-fed canyon on the west side of the Bridger Mountains. The hike leads through a lush, shady forest and up the south canyon wall. The hike ends at an overlook with outstanding views of the Gallatin Valley, Bozeman and the Madison and Tobacco Root Mountain Ranges.Head east past the trail sign and through a grassy, fenced access. Enter a lush forest canopy into Sypes Canyon on the right side of Sypes Creek. Cross over to the north side of the creek, and head up the north wall of the canyon above Sypes Creek. At a half mile, the trail reaches a ridge. Descend alongside a rock wall cliff into the lush, forested canyon. Curve right at one mile, heading south up the canyon while skirting the edge of the national forest boundary."
