Blackmore Trail starts on the west side of the Hyalite Reservoir, located south of Bozeman in Hyalite Canyon. It takes off from the parking lot before the Reservoir, at Blackmore Campground.  Elevation gain from parking lot to summit is around 3,400 feet. The first few miles of trail roll along through root and rock filled forest before opening up into a high alpine single track. The trail passes through alpine meadows and up ridgelines before reaching the summit of Mt. Blackmore.
