Palisade Falls, Bozeman Reviews

  • Great little hike, easy to complete. Waterfall at the end is beautiful. Great hike for kids.

  • Gorgeous scenery. Paved and easy for all ages to walk.

  • Beautiful easy hike. Paved path easy to climb

  • Short (0.7 miles), paved, and wheelchair accessible. Great scenery, and beautifull waterfall to hike to!!

  • Went in winter. Just as an FYI, they closed the last 0.5-0.8 miles of road leading to the TRAILHEAD parking lot. There was another parking lot where people got out and walked from there. As a road, it's very easy walking/skiing/biking; though as a road, it's not much too look at as it's cleared for two cars. So be prepared for that possibility I suppose. As far as the actual hike goes, it is very easy and rewarding. Just in front of the falls, the trail had a 10 ft stretch of just ice. So go around that.
