BEAUTIFUL. worth the trek uphill. It definitely had me out of breath getting there but I saw teenagers to seniors make it. Make sure you pass the lake and go on the dirt road. We turned around at one point because we thought we missed it. Turns out we didn't go far enough!

I went with my husband and 3 of our friends. We had a great time. Beautiful hike not hard. We sat by the waterfall and relax before heading back down.

This is a great trail for all ages. It is not difficult. However when you reach the falls you will be amazed. You can actually get into the bottom of the falls and walk around under the splash.

This waterfall is less than one hour drive south of Bozeman with a paved trail to the waterfall. The trail is uphill so beware of bringing a stroller. Overall I recommend visiting this waterfall as it is a short half mile walk from the parking lot.

Lovely small waterfall. Relatively easy hike, 0.7 miles up a slight slope, on a paved path. You can scramble right up to the base of it, if you want. Uncrowded....in late October, at least. Worth the side trip of about 40 minutes from Bozeman.

The falls are gorgeous in the late fall! It is an easy hike up to see them, even with a little snow on the ground it was an easy trek. The falls trail head is tricky to find, you have to keep an eye out for the few signs they have

We arrived after first snow. We were not really prepared for the slippery surface, but made it anyway. A paved path the whole way, and easy climb to the falls. Worth a short visit, but do not plan your whole day by the falls.

Gallatin National Park is beautiful! We grabbed coffee for a Sunday drive through the park and loved every mile! Stopped at this trailhead and made the short venture up to the falls. Everyone was very friendly on this nice, easy trail. Saw little dogs, elderly and small kids making the trip. There are a few spots to sit on a... More

The ride up to Palisade falls is worth the trip alone. Just gorgeous views, you could easily have a picnic along the way. Wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Also bring the camera as the falls and surrounding area is beautiful.
