Drove canyon several times to get to West Yellowstone from Bozeman to go Xc skiing. Besides beautiful views of canyon and surrounding mountains, saw bighorn sheep near Big Sky on both trips, Also saw herd of elk. While canyon road well maintained it gets a lot of snow so you need to take it easy. Would not recommend going the... More

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!

The Gallatin Canyon road (Hwy. 191 south from "Four Corners" west of Bozeman) offers an excellent trip. Go slow to enjoy the scenery and save your life. It is a narrow canyon tracing the Gallatin River, one of two very different rivers (the other was Paradise Valley along the Yellowstone River to the east) in the film "A River Runs... More

Not far outside of Bozeman, heading southwest, Hwy. 191 snakes its way thru the beautiful Gallatin River valley. Steep rock walls, idyllic river ebb turnouts, and gorgeous scenery around every turn in the road. This is a great drive to get to West Yellowstone from Bozeman, plus, a River Runs Thru It.

We got off a plane and into a car and drove this route to Yellowstone. The road follows a beautiful glistening river replete with fly fisherman, evergreens, and raptors. Great introduction to Yellowstone country, and a much more beautiful drive than to/from the park's north entrance.

A beautiful drive down Highway 191 to West Yellowstone. Just be careful, there is plenty of evidence of drivers who paid the ultimate price for being impatient or careless.

Just by going to the end of 19th street in Bozeman you enter the gallant in forest coming out at a large body of water with people enjoying hiking trails, paddle boarding, fishing. The palisade falls are just beyond.
