If you're looking for a short hike, this is it. It's a steep walk on a paved path. You'll get your heart rate up, but it will come down once you reach the waterfall. A great spot for photos. A good walk for all.

The hike to this falls is very manageable for almost anyone. The falls is beautiful and is a great location for photography. It is about a 12 mile drive up the canyon to reach which takes more time that you would expect if you simply look at the first informational map. Very much worth the time.

Really enjoyed seeing the falls. It was a beautiful ride to get there and with the paved path, it was easy to get to the falls.

Quick and easy Hike! Kids of all ages will enjoy this. Slight incline most of the way, but may be a struggle for people with disabilities with walking, etc. Near a mile "hike" but it is paved. Well worth the walk!

We took the whole family out on this short hike (only 1/2 a mile) to see the waterfall. It would be something I recommend if you have children or older adults that cannot make some of the more challenging hikes. It's was a bit crowded, and we went on a Thursday late morning, so I can only imagine what it's... More

This is a nice easy hike and it is black top. The falls are perfect background for family pictures. The drive to the trail head is about 30 minutes from Bozeman. The hike only takes about an hour including pictures. There are other hikes in the area if you want more of a workout. This hike is perfect for anyone.... More

The Hyalite Canyon area has many many many hikes, and nice paved access from Bozeman into the heart of the Gallatin Range. There are several long trails past many falls to high altitude lakes (Emerald and Heather, for example) and for the tough is a 12.8 mile round trip with 3300 feet climb to the top of Mt Blackmore, one...

This is a easy and pleasant .7 mile hike for all the family. The trail is paved all the way. The more adventuresome members of the group can climb on the rocks to the base. This is a great place to take photos. Stop at Hyalite Lake on the way up to the trailhead.

We enjoyed our little hike up to the Falls. It is uphill but a fairly easy climb. The scenery was worth the walk.
