Beautiful National Forest to drive through and doing great some hiking. The forest is gorgeous. We hiked to Palisade Falls and it was simply beuatif. Lots of streams and places to camp along the stream. We even saw a few cabins to rent which we may do next time. The sounds of the streams/rivers was so peaceful. We could have just sat for hours watching & listening to the sound of them. Definitely plan on returning and enjoying this wonderful National Forest.

Every.single.place.you.turn....there is beauty around you. Prior to this, it had been some time since I had visited a national forest, and Gallatin didn't fail to deliver. Like everyone says, you definitely want to check out the Ousel Falls Trail. But you know what I personally recommend, the Palisade Falls Trail. It's a nice little paved jaunt, and worth the effort. The park is immense, and well cared for. So happy I made the visit!

My husband and I couldn't get into the Mammoth Hot Springs Campground in Yellowstone National Park so we ended up going back into town (turn off on Second St near the gas station) and staying at the Eagle Creek campground in the Gallatin National Forest. Way better campground, beautiful views and woke up to a small herd of bison in camp the next morning. The price for the campsite was $7.

We noticed an advert for the trail is the Big Sky visitor's guide. The trail is fine gravel and flat. The only issue might be the steepness of the trail in some places. The thinner air combined with this might be a challenge for some. We are not hikers & not in the best of shape and got along fine. The falls at the end of the trail was a tremendous reward for our effort. Hint: There is a smaller falls part of the way to the main falls that was so beautiful that we would have thought we had reached our destination had a couple of hikers not told us otherwise.

We spent a few hours in Hyalite Peak in Gallatin National Forest. Beautiful lush forests and almost no other visitors. The temperature was 74F on our visit at noon. You will have ample opportunities for pictures as the scenic views are outstanding. You can either bike, or drive your way through the park. Lots of area's for picnics or quiet trail walks. Easy drive from Bozeman, Montana. No traffic.
