This is an easy, short hike from the parking area to see a very awe-inspiring waterfall. Frozen in the winter and even more interesting to look at, in my opinion. Great for the family, to show visitors or just to get out and enjoy nature.

This is a fairly easy hike, with most, if not all, on a paved trail. The falls were far bigger than I thought they would be, especially when someone stood near the bottom for perspective (which is how I would recommend taking a picture).

This is a nice, easy and popular hike, but just a bit further outside Bozeman than I expected. To get there, find Hyalite Canyon Road about 3/4 of a mile past the point where S 19th makes a 90 degree turn to the west. Then it is another 10 miles on Hyalite Canyon paved road to the reservoir, and finally... More

Easy uphill hike on a paved road. It is accessible to anyone. It is a busy location though, so you won't get much privacy . The walk is worth the views, as it is just gorgeous. The drive up there, past the lake is also beautiful. There are restrooms and a large parking area. It is dog friendly too. The... More

Our family visited this short trail in June. It was easy to find after driving through Hyalite Canyon. The road there is mostly paved except for the last few miles, which were on a well-maintained dirt road. The parking lot at the trail head has a large parking lot, but it can fill up pretty quick. There is also a... More
