The scenic beauty is truly great along 80 percent of the drive from Bozeman to West Yellowstone. There are plenty of "turn-outs," and they are adding more. But beware the canyon road can be dangerous: too many big trucks hold-up traffic - people do not have an opportunity to pass, and drivers who want to take in the beauty fail... More

America is not all about Grand Canyon and Gallatin Canyon is testimony to the fact I don't want to describe it. Go yourself and experience the paradise

Go in the fall! When the leaves are changing it is such a beautiful area. Mountains all around, very colorful area, and hiking trails surround the area everywhere.

Left our Yellowstone experience via the Gallatin Canyon drive (US 191) and found it to be an easy and scenic drive back to Bozeman. There were many interesting trailheads that we would have liked to explore and numerous pulloffs for fisherman but not many possibilities for a rest stop until we got to Big Sky.

Hikes are pretty easy to find. Beautiful, challenging some, doable others. Climbing well documented.

A must is an early morning drive in the fall. Just as the sun has come up. Mist and low clouds shroud the peaks and flow into the valleys. The Aspens will be changing in late Sept early October. Side trip up to Lone Peak at Big Sky is nice. Grab a meal at Bucks T4. Watch for moose in... More

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.
