Head out of Bozeman and take the trail to discover the gorgeous beauty of Palisade Falls. Begin at the Palisade Falls Picnic Area parking lot. The trailhead is marked right here. Families can even picnic right here; there are plenty of picnic tables at the trailhead where you can relax or power up for the hike. The main hike is pretty simple and not exhausting. Hike for around a mile and you will reach the 80-foot vertical rock from which the falls take a trip down to the ground. The trail mostly follows a tributary, so it is quite scenic. Summer is the best time to explore the falls. Visitors recommend this location for its light hike and scenic views all around.

  • Take this hike only in the summer, the trail is rough and cold in other seasons.

  • You can hire a car to get here.

  • One of the easiest falls to access in the Hyalite area. Expect a crowd, so it's hard to get a good picture. The trail is paved but currently having maintenance done (summer 2018). Unique rock features around the falls make it worth the hike. Good hike for families, as even small kids can do this hike.

  • Solid little adventure up to the water fall. Make sure to stop by the lake on the way up, there’s a dam overlook there! The trail is completely paved so wheelchair access is possible - it is quite a hill though just FYI.

  • Nice easy hike, my elderly parents did it... beautiful

  • Beautiful scenery easy paved hiking path. Good to bring the kids. Have seen people making the trip on wheel chairs. And nice water fall at the end

  • This is a short, paved hiking trail that leads to a gorgeous waterfall. It's about 1.5 miles round trip, and is easy enough for kids or to take a stroller on. There is a large parking area with a few picnic tables. (There is also a stinky outhouse near the trailhead--not next to the picnic tables.). You can continue hiking past the paved path, and go right up to the waterfall. Be careful, though. There is also a trail that goes up to the top of the waterfall. I didn't hike there, but I saw others do it.
