People on foot or bike in north Bozeman will soon have a path to the trails in the foothills along Bridger Canyon.

The city announced Thursday that construction has begun on the long-awaited path linking town to the “M,” the most-used trail in the Gallatin National Forest, and Drinking Horse Mountain.

The work will create a roughly 2.2-mile path along Bridger Drive from Story Mill Road. Other than a safe way for hikers to get to the mountains without a vehicle, the hope is the project will ease parking at the popular trailheads.
