Gallatin Canyon Trail
S Big ky At the intersection of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness, the Gallatin Ranges and the Madison Ranges sits the town of Big Sky. From our gateway to adventure, we can count almost 60 trailheads within 10 miles of town! The canyons, meadows, and mountains that meet in Big Sky are some of the best-kept secrets of the hikers who have fallen in love with the West. Whether you’ve just conquered Lone Peak, meandered to Beehive Basin, or stormed to the top of Storm Castle, when the hiking here wraps for the day, the adventure is just beginning. Beyond the trailheads, easy access to world-class fly fishing, epic whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and more make Big Sky’s outlets to adventure just as convenient as they are epic. And when the sun has set, we’ve got a few ideas on where to relax and recharge. So lace up those boots, grab some provisions from town and hit the open trails. The wildflowers, cool mist of mountain streams, and cool wind through the forest are waiting to welcome you. Here’s everything you’ll need to know to get started.
Canyon 8 8
The Gallatin River Canyon connects Big Sky to Bozeman with Highway 191 skirting the river that carved through the canyon. Look up when youâ€™re driving in, because thatâ€™s where these trails will be taking you.
Day Hikes STORM CASTLE PEAK CANYON
A steep trail with amazing views from trailhead to summit. When you get to the top, you’ll be rewarded with views overlooking the entire Gallatin Canyon and then some. Plus, a photo op through a natural arch perfectly frames the view.
TRAVEL TIP We’d recommend tackling Storm Castle earlier in the day. The switchbacks take you through gorgeous mountain meadows that spill into the canyon, but that means there isn’t a lot of shade to protect you from the midday sun. It can get pretty toasty up on that mountain!
LAVA LAKE 6 miles
One of the most scenic hikes in Gallatin Canyon, the Lava Lake trail follows Cascade Creek to a mountain lake chilling at 7,115 feet. From the lake, you have the option to make your way up to the ridge, but we might also recommend a little swim instead. With little river crossings, natural staircases, and even a chance to pick some huckleberries if the season is right, it’s a great hike for any age level. Just save some time for a leisurely picnic at the top. 10
The turnoff to the trailhead is a bit tricky, and you can’t turn onto it straight from the highway when travelling FROM Big Sky. To safely access the trailhead, drive past the turnoff and make a U-turn at the next highway entrance. This will enable you to safely access the turnoff by turning right off the southbound side of the highway.
PORCUPINE CREEK 5 miles
(longer or shorter options possible)
Located right where the canyon meets the meadow, Porcupine Creek’s trailhead sits at the doorstep of town and is a favorite amongst locals. With interconnecting loops and rails, you can make the hike as long or as short as you’d like. This is a bonus for anyone nursing sore calves after the more challenging Storm Castle trek. TRAVEL TIP The access to Porcupine Creek is sometimes limited by the Forest Service depending on the season. Stop by the Big Sky & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Information Center to double check any access restrictions. Or just to say hi.
TAYLOR FORK Mileage and elevation gain varies based on trail picked. Adjacent to Yellowstone National Park, the Taylor Fork region is a local favourite for hiking, camping, horseback riding, and more. Check out trails like Bacon Rind, Cache Creek, Lightning Creek, Sage Creek, or throughout this unique landscape.
Seek out color– In fall, the Aspen and Cottonwood tree leaves are magnificently gold and red.
Still craving more? Check out these other canyon favourites that appeal to a variety of skill levels.
Taylor Fork Area
Just outside of Yellowstone, the Taylor Fork Area is home to elk, grizzly bears, and plenty of other wildlife who call this part of the state home. With hikes like Tumbledown Lake, the wildflower basins, waterfalls, thick forests and rock formations showcases some of the best of the region’s unique landscapes.
MULTIPLE TRAIL LOOPS
Fawn Pass Trail
Fawn Pass rewards hikers with some pretty spectacular Yellowstone views, and possibly some bear sightings. So make sure you’re Bear Aware at all times on this moderate trek. The trail ends at a meadow and a small lake, ideal for a quick snack before heading back on the trailhead.
18 miles ROUNDTRIP
Scrambling and some serious elevation gain sound like your style? Check out Dudley Creek Trail, close to Big Sky and home to some epic views, plus an alpine lake! It’s also possible to climb to the peak of Mt. Wilson here if you’re looking for some serious bragging rights.

Wetsuits are an option with both companies.
TRAVEL TIP Wear or bring closed toed shoes, comfortable shorts/pants, and weather appropriate clothing.
FLY FISHING Fly fishing along the Gallatin River... could it be any more iconic? Driving along 191, you’ll see the river’s edge dotted with fly-fishers casting their reels and enjoying the spectacular scene. Want to learn how it’s done? There are plenty of operators out of Big Sky who run tours, from a few hours to a full day. You’ll likely meet your guide at a local shop where they’ll help you get sorted with a fishing license, waders, and more, and then drive you out to the canyon to their own favourite spots. The fishing for all lessons is catch and release, so no pressure to bring home dinner. It’s a great way to learn about the sport from the people most passionate about it! TRAVEL TIP
Check out Gallatin River Guides, Montana Whitewater, Geyser Whitewater, or visitbigsky.com for a full list of adventure operators in the canyon.
HORSEBACK RIDING Give your feet a rest and hit the trails on horseback instead. There’s nothing
Montana than riding a horse through the meadows and mountains, and horses are also a great way to see more of the backcountry. Outfitters here provide both summer and winter tours, and if you have your own horse, many also offer boarding facilities. Before you saddle up, you’ll want to call into Jake’s Horses, Lone Mountain Ranch, or 320 Guest Ranch to book an adventure. TRAVEL TIP It’s always a good idea to dress in layers no matter what time of year you visit.
Where the road guides you from Canyon to Meadow, you’ll find the vibrant community of Big Sky. A hub for local pieces, shops, artisan foods, and classy cocktails, our little town is the gateway to all of our adventures. From mountain sunsets with Lone Peak in the distance to stocking up on provisions for your next big trek, here’s all you need to know about Big Sky’s Meadow region.

This trail can be connected with the Ousel Falls Trailhead via the Ralph’s Pass trail if you’re looking for a longer hike. But watch out for mountain bikers!
Springtime at the falls is especially epic with runoff from all of that melting mountain snow.
The trail has 3 possible loops, which means you can customize your hike to make it as short or as long as you’d like!
A great trail for both hikers and mountain bikers, the Hummocks Trail is close to town and is accessible year round! The moderately challenging trail wanders through the Meadow region’s hummocks with bumps in the landscape which were created by landslides during the ice age.
Close to town and great for all skill levels! Black Diamond Trail
Shorter in length, but not short on views, the Black Diamond Trail in town is a great option year round. A small incline leads up to a vista with great views back over the park.

Connecting the Uplands Trail and the Ousel Falls Trail, Ralph’s Pass is a moderate hike with boardwalks and takes in mountain views over to Lone Peak in addition to journeys thorugh forest and meadows.
2.7 miles ROUNDTRIP
A great hike for when you’re a little short on time, the Reflector Loop can be a stunning showcase of mountain wildflowers if you plan your summer hiking right! It’s a popular trail for birdwatching too!

Adventures MUSIC IN THE MOUNTAINS Every Thursday night, Big Sky locals and visitors alike join in for a free summer concert series put on by the Arts Council of Big Sky. Listen to live music at free outdoor summer concerts every Thursday night in Town Center Park. Bring a picnic blanket and a chair (some people even bring their own couches) and get comfy for the show. Food trucks from all over are on hand for an easy dinner, and some of our local craft breweries will be serving up some of their finest librations as well.
Music in the Mountains is Montanaâ€™s finest free outdoor concert series.
One road in, one road out, and it’s all leading to the Mountain. From town’s elevation at about 7,000 feet, Lone Peak stretches from the horizon to a staggering 11,166 feet! While you can hike up that beauty (with experience and a sturdy pair of boots, of course), the mountains surrounding its prominent peak shouldn’t be overlooked. Here are some of our top picks for where to get trekking in the big mountains of Big Sky.
Day Hikes BEEHIVE BASIN 6.6 miles
Named one of the world’s greatest hikes for the stunning alpine terrain with lakes and towering peaks, Beehive Basin is a relatively easy hike with a big payoff. Enjoy views of Lone Peak and the Lee Metcalf Wilderness from several points throughout the hike, stopping for the best view of the towering peaks and wilderness at the alpine

lake at the top. We’ll let the photos do the talking for this one.
WILSON PEAK 12 miles
A tough hike with an amazing payoff, Wilson Peak is nestled between Jumbo, Gallatin, and Table Peak in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. The hike takes you up along Dudley Creek, before arriving at Dudley Lake. For many, this is where the trail ends, but for others, it’s just the beginning! From the lake, a scramble can take you up to the top of Wilson Peak at over 10,700 feet in elevation, where you’ll be able to see the Spanish Peaks laid out before you. It’s a spectacular view, that’s for sure. 22

Rated as moderate, visitors can hike, mountain bike, or use the marked equestrian trail. Dogs are also welcome to enjoy the space.
When out with dogs, please keep a close eye on them and remember to be Bear Aware.
Refuel A major perk of trekking out to Big Sky on a hiking trip? You can be as close to or as far away from modern conveniences as you choose. For those who would love to trade in the camp stove for a sit-down restaurant, here are a few places in town and close by that we’d recommend.
