I love this place. I like the geological surrounds: Hyalite Canyon, columnar basalt. Now it is wheelchair accessible via a paved sidewalk. This diminishes the wildness very little and makes my heart glad. When I was at MSU, in Bozeman, I often took a quick trip/hike here.

These spectacular falls are accessible via a paved walk, handicapped accessible, almost any time of year. It is about a 3/4-mile walk each way. Hiking up a dirt path to the top is optional. Take you camera.

NOT easy going during winter. About 4 mile round trip walk from nearest parking. Snow shoes are a good idea, but not likely mandatory on the packed snow and icy trail. Driving there is not trivial. 4wd highly recommended even though Hyalite canyon is plowed and relatively heavily traveled for a dead-end recreation road. We drove our Mazda2 rental to... More

We took our granddaughter on this scenic, short, paved trail back to Palisade Falls. Very nice scenery and she loved the falls at the end. Would recommend for a quick and easy hike.

Very fun little walk not hard at all. The path is even paved for handicap access. When we have folks in town, its always a great little walk just to get out of the house.

You just have to see it. Awesome. Easy enough for everyone to get there. The paved trail made it possible for my 87 year old mom to "take a hike up" and you could push a wheel chair, but it is a bit steep for pushing a heavier person. Just an amazing Falls any time of the year ! I... More

The fall is situated in the Gallatin National Forest; an asphalted path leads us to it. The set is majestic and magnificent photos to set are possible for it

Palisade Falls is a nice, paved walk from the Hyalite Canyon up a gentle incline of switchbacks to an amazing waterfall and beautiful natural rock sculptures. The drive is an easy and pretty destination from downtown Bozeman or MSU. Worth a couple of hours to get out and explore a bit of the surrounding area.

We loved hiking/walking to and relaxing by these falls. This is an easy walk up to the falls - the trail is paved the entire way, but it does climb a bit which will get your heart pumping a little. This is a popular trail, but there were only a few other people in the parking lot when we arrived... More
