Gallatin Canyon is a beautiful bunch of miles that includes Big Sky Montana Resort. It is a blue ribbon trout stream, beautiful homes and untouched wilderness. The problem, if you can call it that, is that much of the deeded ground is being bought up and developed scaring the landscape.. See it now... you will end up in Yellowstone Park..(don't... More

Love driving 191 along the Gallatin River, on the way to West Yellowstone and the National Park entrance. We have seen moose, bears and lots of elk.

Gorgeous scenery and plenty of places to stop and hike or camp. Breathtaking views and safe roads to get to the top of the mountains.

Decided to climb Storm Castle Trail even though with the road being closed it added a few more miles. (8 in total) I hiked it on Sunday (3-22-15) and the trail was clear 98% of the way which is unheard of for this time of year in Montana. I had skied earlier that morning making this a multi-sport adventure day... More

The canyon is hidden as you approach from Belgrade and then like magic you enter through a slot in the hills. The Gallatin river is beautiful and there are many fun drives (Spanish Creek) and hikes (Storm King). Have breakfast or lunch at the Inn on the Gallatin and play at Big Sky. Awesome place.

Nice drive all the way to West Yellowstone. Be aware that the ski and construction traffic is intense 7-9 am and 4-6 pm. When it snows it is a thrill a minute. Pull over if you are slow!!

Great place to get out of the car and take the dogs for a walk. Drive carefully and use the pullouts.

Scenic and beautiful drive. Pay attention to the road though! Early morning "traffic" You might also have big horn sheep on the road.

Drove through on our way to Yellowstone and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of animals we got to see and take photos of.

This is an absolutely beautiful route to take to big sky and/or Yellowstone. With the river running right beside the highway, there is always something beautiful to see including huge rock formations kayakers and fishermen on the river. We have hiked on several of the trails that are accessible by this highway, and they are just amazing. Storm Castle is... More
