Beautiful all-season trail (but use yak trax or snowshoes when it's icy). Perfect for family hikes.

Very nice short walk with beautiful scenery around the west fork of the Gallitan river. Up and down walk so a little more challenging if not in shape or use to the altitude than the 80 foot elevation gain would make you expect!

This is an easy scenic trail that does not gain a ton of elevation. Great place to take your kids or walk your dog after work if you live in big sky. Great waterfall and outstanding creek.

I like to hike this trail with a dinner basket and a bottle of wine on a summer evening...There are picnic tables at the falls and the cool air coming off the water pair well with the sounds of nature.

Easy hike that gives you great views of a spur of the Gallatin River, and great views of the falls. Shaded throughout, and manageable in the winter. Great after-work evening hike!

Simple hike with great views of the river throughout the majority of the hike. Well maintained, a tree had fallen and on the trail and when we passed the spot again they had someone out there cutting the tree up from blocking the trail.
