My son and I camped here on a previous visit and the sound of the river rushing by your espirit campsite is so soothing. Camping is either free or very cheap.

Gorgeous scenery where we saw many many fly fishermen and women. There were also many horse trailers parked alongside. Discovered that people drove their horses here so they can go horse back riding. Who would not in a place like this.

Suggested by co-workers, this is a gorgeous drive. Left Bozeman early in the morning and made good time but adored the trip, and stopped often for photos. Well worth your time as the route into Yellowstone.

We took the Gallatin Canyon Pass to get from Yellowstone to Bozeman. The 120 miles took about 2.5 hours.. The scenery was gorgeous, the sky was "big" and blue, not too much traffic on the road, and for the most part, there were two lanes in each direction. It's too bad we did not have enough time to take any... More

This drive to Yellowstone is really more scenic than the immediate entrance to the park on the west side. But all along this route you get glimpses of why Montana is so often called the Last Best Place--meadows, clear streams, and a mountain skyline that is world class. This route into Yellowstone park is beautiful, but each entrance is beautiful... More

As you travel south on 191 from Bozeman, there are numerous signed national forest trailheads. Many great trails at all sorts of hiking difficulty. Grab a guidebook of dayhikes or just take a look at the online topos, and pick something that suits your ability - from gentle hikes up creeks to strenuous jaunts up nice peaks.

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
