This past September, the Gallatin Valley Land Trust ramped up its Main Street to the Mountains trail system by opening a new trail off of McIlhattan Road. It’s called the Snowfill Recreation Area and is located on 37 acres of land just north of the Bozeman City Landfill.

The area is fully fenced and so the entire trail is open to off-leash dogs, and in spite of the close proximity to the landfill, the views are great. There are five kilometers of groomed cross-country track in the winter, as well as a sweet sledding hill. A 1.25-mile memorial trail loop in honor of long-time Bozeman outdoorswoman Hedvig Flowers is also an integral part of the Snowfill area.

The Regional Park is also on its way to becoming one of Bozeman's great places. The Dinosaur Playground, slated to be built by an army of volunteers in six days in June 2009, will be an awesome hangout for kids from two to 12 years old. The group needs volunteers, so check out dinosaurplayground.org for more information. Also, the Gallatin Valley Skate Park Association is busy securing funding to build a 30,000-square-foot skate park. For more information on that, check out gallatinvalleyskatepark.com.
