Gallatin Riverside Trail 

5.5 miles (round-trip)

Duration: 1.5 to 3 hours 

Difficulty: Easy

Elevation Gain: 200 feet 

Activities: Hiking, trail running, climbing, mountain biking

Crowds: Moderate traffic

With looming cliffs overhead and framed by lodgepole pines and moss-covered boulders, this trail captures all of the area's beauty without the elevation gain. Enjoy a long, leisurely hike, watching the rafters and kayakers pass you by; or park a car at the Lava Lake trailhead and make it a quick one-way. 

From Bozeman, take Hwy. 191 south toward Gallatin Canyon. Drive 17 miles to Storm Castle Rd. between mile markers 66 and 65, and take a left, crossing the Storm Castle Bridge. Follow Storm Castle Rd. for 2 miles to the posted parking area.
