Hikes around Bozeman
From steep inclines that test your endurance to leisurely strolls through
the pines, there is a multitude of hikes to be found in and around Bozeman.
While you can always find some more off the beaten trail, the following
are some of the most popular hikes in town (and our personal favorites).
If you’ve ever driven through Bozeman, you’ve most certainly
seen the “M.” Made of large white stone, the M is an emblem
that has been formed on Bridger Canyon and has become an icon for the
town. When it comes to reaching the M, there are two different trails
you can take. One is a more leisurely hike, great for afternoon walks
or families, while the second is much steeper and more of a physical challenge.
Whichever way you take up, your reward for reaching the top is a spanning
overview of our cozy town. Just ten minutes from Main, the M has become
a popular hike for many Bozeman locals.
Sourdough Trail is another well-trekked trail near Bozeman. A little further
out, hiking Sourdough feels a bit more like a mini-adventure than some
of the more central trails in town. The landscape is saturated with pines,
making it prime terrain to support wildlife like elk, bears, and mountain
lions. The terrain is rated moderate and is perfect for runners, skiers,
and bikers looking for a place to get out and get going. Stretching nearly
13 miles from north to south, this trail offers a large glimpse at Montana’s
Sypes Canyon Trail
Sypes Canyon is another Bozeman trail on the outskirt of town. Just a 20-minute
drive from Main Street, it sits at the southern end of the Bridger Range.
The steeper trail winds for four miles through a shaded forest, staying
close to a creek-fed canyon. It offers incredible views of the city along
with the Madison, Gallatin, and Tobacco Root mountain ranges.
Winter is the reason for the season and why people come to Bozeman from
all over the country. With the onset of the first frost, you can almost
hear the gear being pulled from garages around town—the excitement
is nearly tangible. That’s because Bozeman and the surrounding areas
make for some of the best Midwest territory to explore come the winter
months. Whether you’re shredding pow, snowshoeing, or skiing your
way cross country, there’s no shortage of adventures to be had come
the snowy season. That’s why we’ve put together some of our
favorite places to make the most out of winter.
Skiing Bridger Bowl may be one of the most popular things to do in Bozeman
during the wintertime. Only a 25-minute drive from the heart of town,
this local spot offers over 70 ski trails with plenty of additional unmarked
runs. This mountain is perfect for skiers of every level. The base of
the mountain offers large, wide-open terrain for beginners, while more
experienced skiers can take the highest lift 8,700 ft up for more expert runs.
Yellowstone National Park
Many don’t fully realize the extensive list of activities and sights
the winter season at Yellowstone has to offer. Visitors can still access
the park through winter sightseeing tours in heated snowcoaches. If you’re
wanting to get out and about, snowshoeing tours will lead you along the
Firehole River to Old Faithful. The geyser is a sight to behold in the
winter, as boiling hot temperatures mix with the freezing conditions for
an incredible display. If you’re looking for something with a little
more action, the park is open for daily ski passes for both children and adults.
As America’s largest ski resort, Big Sky Resort offers tons of space
for getting outdoors for your favorite winter activities. Don’t
let the big title deceive you as far as visitor density goes. The resort
is often commended for its short to non-existent lift lines, with lots
of elbow room along 300 named runs. Visitors can seek out extreme trails
across Lone Peak’s 11,000+ ft of elevation, while beginners can
get group or individual lessons through the resort.

Crosscut Mountain Sports Center
For those looking for less extreme conditions, the Crosscut Mountain Sports
Center is the perfect destination. This 10-mile trail system offers scenic
Montana views of private and Forest Service lands. Located just 16 miles
northeast of Bozeman, this dedicated Nordic Skiing area has terrain for
all levels and is perfect for family outings or a day of sight-seeing.
The great outdoors is one of the biggest perks to living in the great city
of Bozeman. It’s something the city has made the most of through
parks and recreational areas perfect for any activity. From dog friendly
parks with off-leash areas, to scenic locations like Bozeman Pond, we’re
highlighting some of our favorite recreational areas that are perfect
for you or your family to get out and get going.
Tucked right off the end of Main Street, Lindley Park is the perfect environment
for families looking to spend a leisurely day in the outdoors. Its open
landscapes and covered pavilion space make it the perfect park for hosting
personal events like birthdays or weddings. Lindley is most well known
as the grounds for which Bozeman’s annually anticipated Sweet Pea
Festival is held.
This beautiful space is the picture of what a perfect park ought to look
like. It has everything one could want in a park—running and walking
gravel trails that total 2.5 miles roundtrip, fishing docs, benches, off-leash
areas, and public restrooms.
Acquired by the Gallatin Valley Land Trust, this 12-acre space has been
designed with the Bozeman community at heart. Children can learn to fish
off the docks of the well-stocked trout pond, and dog owners are able
to let their pups run off-leash in designated areas that even include
More commonly known as “Pete’s Hill,” this park is one
of Bozeman’s most frequented, and for good reason. The elevated
plot of land is situated perfectly for catching some of the city’s
best sunset views. This area is one of those precious local landmarks
that makes Bozeman feel as if there is access to the great outdoors at
every turn, even within its suburbs. Located directly behind the Bozeman
Library, Burke Park is populated by hundreds of biking, running, and dog-walking
Bozemanites on a daily basis.

Live Like the Locals
Not all of Bozeman’s best features are found in the wild. In town
you’ll discover a host of shops, venues, and events that are perfect
for a day of strolling the streets or night on the town. Bozeman offers
all of the small-town charm combined with big city culture. The combination
is one that can’t be found in many other places.
Just one glance down Main Street feels like a glimpse back in time, and
yet it’s populated with every modern convenience you could ask for.
We’ve put together a list of our favorite places to be when it comes
to getting the most out of our great town.
Museum of the Rockies
Great for all ages, this museum holds some incredible wonders from both
past and present. Guests can stand in rooms stacked with actual T-Rex
skeletons, or stroll through a breathtaking photography exhibit with over
40 of the top National Geographic photos ever taken.
The Ellen Theater
Stepping through the doors of the Ellen Theater for a show feels a lot
like stepping back in time. Still in much of its original state, the vintage
theater hosts local plays, old movie reruns, and traveling artists and
The Emerson Cultural Center
The Emerson is made up of two different levels. On the main floor you’ll
find smaller one-person galleries with art for purchase, while upstairs
are studios where you can chat with working artists. Finish your trip
to Emerson at the Emerson Grill for great wines, sustainable produce,
and an intimate atmosphere.
This quirky café is a local favorite, known around town for its
list of sassy stipulations for all customers. (If you want water, ask
for it. If you want poached eggs, go somewhere else.) Bring in your cat
eye glasses for 50 cents off any meal (but don’t take them off or
you’ll lose your discount).
Insiders tip: Leaving before you try the banana bread French toast is an
injustice to yourself.
If you’re looking for a less spunky breakfast spot, the Wild Crumb
is one of our favorites. Located off North Wallace, this spot offers a
nice break from downtown with artisan breads and pastries made daily.
The moment you walk into Blackbird, you’re wrapped in the crisp smell
of an open wood burning stove. Wood fired pizzas, local meats, and organic
greens make this eatery one of the more savory stops along Main.
Yes, we are putting a food truck as a must-try on our list. This vintage,
aluminum RV swept the city by storm ever since it settled onto Main—selling
tacos from one end and local ice cream from the other.
Insider’s Tip: For tacos, try the Kim Jong, Fin, or Piggly Wiggly.
Or all three! They’re not too big.
Insider’s Tip: For ice cream, try the flavor of the day. It’s
usually something interesting like Basil Coconut or Sweet Corn Huckleberry.
Located directly across from Victory, this new distillery is one that won’t
disappoint. Pop in for their huckleberry vodka, or make your way next
door to the brewery for a beer. Order straight from Victory Taco while
at either and they’ll bring it right to you.
This posh cocktail, wine bar, and restaurant combo feels like it belongs
on the bustling street of some metropolis. Their upscale but relaxed atmosphere
is the perfect place to cozy up with friends or family around craft cocktails
and a decadent cheese board.
As one of Bozeman’s newer breweries to town, MAP has had a sensational
start in the city and one visit makes it clear why. Situated on the banks
of Glen Lake Park, the brewery offers wide open views of the Bridger mountains
that look close enough to touch. Locals can sit by the fireplace under
large vaulted ceilings or sip their brew on the back patio, where dogs
are welcome and encouraged to take a dip in Glen Lake.
Another newer drink stop in Bozeman, Corx is one you won’t want to
skip. The husband and wife-owned winery offers an intimate atmosphere
to grab a glass (or a flight) and snack on small plates. Decked with local
artwork and run by a spirited staff, Corx is a Main Street must-see.
Insider’s Tip: Try their Corx’s house blend red. It’s
affordable and will be one of your new all-around favorites.
