Climb up was pretty steep near the top but it was paved so that was nice. Good thing is it was super easy on the way down! :) Lots of friendly people that day with lots of dogs. Beautiful falls that you can climb up towards. A hidden gem for sure!

It is water falling from a large height onto interesting rocks... what more could you ever want. It is easy to get to.

Our three year old walked all the way there and was happy to do so. Also kept our three older kids engaged. Good path and very quiet when we were there.

Some directs are skewed online but wasn't hard to find proper directions. Was short but slower drive to get to the parking area then a short walk on a paved path to the falls. Last bit of hike does get some steeper, might be harder for some people. Falls were neat to see and can get right to it. There... More

This is an average to moderate hike for 1.2 miles round trip. Drive South on 19th Avenue. Go 7 miles then turn left. Follow the road for 11.7 miles on a dirt road then turn left at the fork in the road. Go 1 additional mile to see trail-head. Very majestic and beautiful area. The falls are definitely worth the...

Palisade Falls was average in terms of experiencing a waterfall. The drive from town center took about 45 minutes. The last 10 miles or so are along a winding road which follows the river. The final 2 to 3 miles are on a very rough gravel road which most rental cars are not supposed to travel on. The walk to... More

Palisade Falls was a short ride outside of Bozeman. It was a very nice hike on a tar path. There were lots of families with young children on the hike. The waterfall was beautiful and the air was nice and cool.

Short trip outside of Bozeman. The drive is worth it even if you don't hike up to the falls. Beautiful scenery, particularly near the reservoir.

My husband and I read about this hike, so checked it out. It was wonderful! Easy half mile paved hike. There were quite a few kids / families, as it was 4th of July week. One lady was pushing a stroller up the mountain with 2 kids! I highly recommend this -- the waterfall is beautiful!

We stayed outside of Bozeman the end of June and this was a place I had read about. After having donuts at a local shop, my guys and I took a nice drive out to the falls. An easyhike and very peaceful on a weekday morning. The water sure was cold- and tasted great!
