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.

Very easy, paved path. It's beautiful and great for families but there are a lot of people because of this.

Paved path with too many people. And the falls are okay.

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!
