This short hike leads you to an impressive waterfall. We really enjoyed taking pictures here and just spending some time hanging out beneath the falls. I recommend this as a short stop in beautiful Hyalite Canyon!

Nice paved walk through the trees. Cool hike on a hot day. We sometimes take out of state visitors here for a Montana experience.

This is an outstanding and close place when visiting the Bozeman area to see a world class water fall. The paved walk to the falls is short and wheelchair accessible making it a good choice for a nice outing where one can meander up to the beautiful Palisades Falls to feel the spray of water if you choose.

A nice hike to a beautiful waterfall. Not too long. Some uphill but older people can make it if you go slow

Beautiful scenery and spectacular photo appeal! Hiked with seniors (60s) and kids (3 and 5). All had a great time.

These are a nice falls but considering how short the hike is to them the drive from Bozeman is barely worth it. If doing it then add in another hike in the forest to make the trip worthwhile.

The falls are tucked away in this pristine lush mountains and are way more beautiful than its pictures. It's a 45 min drive from Bozeman and you can stop on the way to falls to absorb the beauty of the gallatin river. The falls are easily accessible by a paved trail and you can literally stand right under the falls... More

Beautiful falls located after a .7 mile hike on paved trail through the woods. Worth the hike for beautiful photograph opportunities.

Recommend to the novice and pro hikers/explorers! Hyalite Reservoir is breathtaking, make sure to take your time and enjoy as much as possible. This hike is quick, on a winding trail and some gorgeous sites along the way!

Beautiful falls; well worth the short hike. The trail goes right up to the bottom of the falls; and it's paved which makes it accessible for almost everyone. It's about a 45-minute drive out of town, but very scenic along the way. If you're in Bozeman you should take the time to do this hike!
