The fantastic scenery combined with national forests, wilderness areas, and an outdoor-oriented community make the hiking in this area superb. Day Hikes Around Bozeman, Montana has won awards from both the Northwest Outdoor Writers Association and the Rocky Mountain Outdoor Writers and Photographers. Now in its fourth edition, the book includes 110 of the best day hikes in a straight-forward, hassle-free guide aimed to get you on the trails. These hikes explore the mountain ranges and valleys that converge around Bozeman, including the Bridgers, Gallatin Canyon, the Spanish Peaks, the Gallatin Range, and Paradise Valley. Many trails are located with the city itself, which boasts a thriving community trail system and an active liberal-arts college. The Gallatin National Forest, part of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem that stretches to Bozeman, spreads across 1.8-million acres and six mountain ranges around the city. Trail highlights include waterfalls, alpine lakes, sweeping overlooks, valleys surrounded by craggy peaks, petrified forests, historic sites, and the soothing sound of creeks tumbling through forested canyons.
