Palisade Falls is located south of Bozeman beyond the Hyalite Reservoir. The trail begins at the East Fork of Hyalite Creek then follows a tributary creek for approximately a half mile to a bridge fronting the falls. The Palisade Falls is a towering cataract that drops more than 80 feet off a vertical rock wall at the southern base of Palisade Mountain. The trail is wheelchair-accessible with picnic tables at the trailhead.

Directions: From 19th Avenue drive south to Hyalite Canyon Road. Turn left and continue past the Hyalite Reservoir, taking the left fork towards Palisade Falls.

I really wouldn't consider it a "hike" due to the fact that the trail is paved, but the end location is very cool. Good for families.

A great family-friendly trail. The falls are beautiful and the resulting mist is refreshing. Avoid the crowds and visit this trail on a weekday.

What's your take?

So, what do you REALLY think?
Have pics of this place? Toss 'em in here! Keep it clean, though, this is a G-rated establishment!
