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!

Love this little waterfall, and how easy it is to get there! Makes a great afternoon or morning visit if you just have a little time and love waterfalls at the end of the trail, like I do.

We went to Hyalite Canyon for a couple hour hike, headed for Palisades Falls to see the Water Fall. There is still some areas with snow on the ground but none that block the walk. Lots of water running off down the sides of the road and trail. Many plants and flowers beginning to poke up and show Spring is... More

This is a fairly short hike up to an awesome tall waterfall. You can climb all around the water and even go right up to the waterfall if up want. The whole hike is paved, great for toddlers and elderly that can go at an incline but might be a little wobbly on their feet. My mother has asthma and... More

A fairly easy hike that 2-3 yr olds can do easily, as well as 70-80 yr olds. The hike to the falls is so worth it when you get to them!

The "hike" to Palisade falls is far from a hike, but is definitely worth the visit to anyone visiting or living in Bozeman. The trail to the falls begins right past Hyalite Canyon (a MUST see for anyone in the Bozeman area for any length of time). Once past Hyalite Canyon, there is a bridge and then the paved road...

A scenic 30-min drive from Bozeman, Palisade Falls is one of the most accessible (it's paved) hikes in the area. The trek to the falls is comfortable, minimally strenuous and lovely as it winds through trees and rock formations. It's also fairly shaded and only takes about 20 to 30 minutes, even with small children. The Falls is arguably the... More
