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 turns to dirt. Following this dirt road leads to a fork, Palisade Falls trailhead is just about 3 miles past the left fork in the road. The Palisade Falls trail is completely paved the entire way and does not even classify as sleep or even a slope really. The incline is miniscule and is hardly noticeable. The trail is also not very long either; it would take a most 20-30 minutes depending on the season and the age and physical condition of the hikers. Once at the falls, there is a small wooden bridge that faces the falls. This is a great location for photography. This trail is perfect for children, handicapped individuals, or just anyone who is looking to enjoy a beautiful waterfall in Bozeman's extremely scenic Hyalite area. The road to the trailhead is most easily accessible in late Spring, Summer, and early Fall. The road is still open in the winter, but would only really be accessible by a four wheel drive vehicle, a jeep, an ATV, snowshoes, skis, or just on foot.
