When you go or come out of Yellowstone, take this awesome drive through Gallatin Canyon on one of your trips in or out. The steep high limestone cliffs create a very colorful sight especially at sunrise or sunset along the Gallatin River, which has its...More

I love the Gallatin River! It starts in Yellowstone National Park And empties into the Missouri River at Three Forks, MT. It is so diverse. From meandering stream to wide flowing river to rocky canyon with exhilarating rapids. It is fun watching the commercial rafters...More

Great views. Peaceful. Not far from town. Many fishing holes. We love spending a day on this river with family.

This is a must do while in southwest Montana. The drive from Bozeman to West Yellowstone follows the Gallatin River most of the way. The scenery is great, you will have a good chance to see sheep, elk and deer along the way. On occasion...More

This trip was a weekend of fishing, mostly on the Gallatin. Scenery sucks. No fish near any of the turnouts. Nothing else to do. Everyone (but me and my friends) should avoid the entire river. :)

You can't go to Bozeman without driving down into the canyon at least as far as Big Syk. Take your time. Stop at a few of the pull offs.
