Be sure to check out Ousel Falls. There's a new and vastly improved trail to the falls, which is suitable for all ages. The hike should take about a half an hour. To get to the trail head, Take the Big Sky Spur Road from US 191 toward Big Sky Resort. About 3 miles up the road, turn left on Ousel Falls Road (at the Big Sky Town Center sign). The trail head parking lot is about 2 miles down Ousel Falls Road. There are 2 new trails opened August 2014, called Hummocks 3 mi and Uplands Trail 2 mile. The trailhead is off Aspen Leaf Dr., behind the Town Center.

In the summer time, you can take a tram to summit of Lone Peak.

In the Meadow Village, there is a pond just past the golf course where fishing is allowed for kids 16 & under only.
