If you are heading to or from Yellowstone Park, try to drive the Gallatin Canyon between West Yellowstone and Bozeman. You won't be disappointed!. It's one of great 90 minutes drives in the USA!

The beauty of this river is only exceeded by the fishing that can be done on it. There are plenty of hungry trout in there, and they will rise to your fly. And the full length of it is a true gem. Go all the way.

Drove canyon several times to get to West Yellowstone from Bozeman to go Xc skiing.

Traveled the canyon coming from West Yellowstone. It is beautiful. Winter time, however, the road can be a little icy so best to travel at appropriate speeds.

Highway 191 follows the Gallatin river through this canyon. Drive slow, but use the pull outs to let the locals pass, this way you are safe and they won't try to pass you. There are a number of great hikes originating on this stretch of road, certainly worth exploring.

We enjoy so many places along the Gallatin River. Bison, coyote, and eagles were viewed along Spanish Creek Trail. The Gallatin River offers fishing and whitewater rafting. Hike Indian Ridge Trailhead and Stormcastle Trailhead in early summer for wildflowers galore!
