We went to Bozeman because it was close to Yellowstone and very affordable. We had no idea what we were in for. Driving through this canyon, with it's snow capped mountain, beautiful rivers and streams, was pure magic. This is a must see.

After reading the reviews we decided to take the drive. It was beautiful. We rolled down the windows and enjoyed the fresh air. The river is so clear and there are many turn outs to stop and enjoy the views of the river. If you like scenic drives then this is the drive for you.

This has to be on of the most amazing places to visit. The Gallatin River is a blast to raft. I highly recommend it.

A magnificent drive through the canyon, with a rolling river next to you. "Storm Castle", a rock formation along the way, give you any ideas on the steep rock formations among the cliff's the ride to Yellowstone from the Belgrade/Bozeman area ? Great hiking, camping and good chances to see Moose, Big Horn Sheep and other awesome wild animals along... More

These are VERY easy hikes and are also wheelchair accessible. A fun way to kick off a trip to Yellowstone and get the family in the mood for hiking.

The Gallatin Canyon is located heading south from Bozeman via Highway 191 ending at West Yellowstone. The city of Big Sky is in the canyon also. The drive through the Gallatin Canyon is one of the prettiest we have been on. You feel as though you are right in the middle of the forest with the beautiful Gallatin River roaring... More

This is a fantastic drive with views the entire time. Hiked two different trails but there were multiple options depending upon activity level. Most trailheads had signage by the road with distance. I have heard lava lake is a great hike but our kids were too young for the degree of difficulty. Enjoy.

It was an easy drive up from Yellowstone and the next day we drove south to Big Sky. Good roads and beautiful scenery.

Beautiful Drive along this amazing River. We started out by visiting Bozeman downtown, which I highly recommend. Lots of cool shops and eating establishments. We then took the highway 191 down to West Yellowstone. We stayed at the 320 Ranch for the night and ate at a nearby BBQ joint - which was awesome.

This is a gorgeous canyon I often drive to get to Bozeman Montana. Please be careful on this route as there are lots of animals and they tend to come out at night. I think it's best just to avoid driving at night due to this, not to mention you can't see the gorgeous scenery. Aside from using this is... More
