Highlights of this Trip
DO: WEST YELLOWSTONE
A few blocks from Yellowstone National Park, navigate one of the country's largest aerial adventure courses, soar down on a zipline, or try the new Yellowstone Mining Sluice.
EAT: BEARCLAW BAKERY
Coffee's on at 5 a.m. but breakfast is from 6-10:13 - try the French toast, a biscuit sandwhich or one of the scrambles. And, oh, don't forget the baked goods!
STARTING POINT: BOZEMAN
With Yellowstone Country's healing waters and immense pine-studded hills, it's no wonder such a geographically diverse region was chosen for America's First National Park. We've even mapped it all out, so you can put the phone away and be distracted by the epic views and hidden gems!
Start your adventure in Bozeman. Bozeman is called “the most livable place” for good reason. Enjoy world-renowned fly fishing, dramatic mountains for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, hunting, and backcountry exploring, Yellowstone National Park, and impressive wildlife. When you are ready for a more city experience, dive into Bozeman’s thriving arts and culture communities, ranging from main street festivals, farmers markets, cultural centers and museums to symphonies, theaters, and art galleries.
LIVINGSTON & GARDINER
About an hour southeast, the popular (and easy) out-and-back trail at Pine Creek Falls near Livingston rewards with a waterfall view. At Yellowstone Hot Springs near Gardiner, mineral rich waters rejuvenate tired muscles at 103 dehrees. The waters colder on a guided river float at Wild West Rafting in Gardiner, so kids of all ages can savor 6 miles of scenic views.
COOKE CITY & RED LODGE
In Cooke City, the Montana Museum uses touch screens to put you in touch with local history. Find nostalgic childhood treats at Montana Candy Emporium in Red Lodge, at one end of the Beartooth Highway. The 68-mile route leads through enchanting pine forests right into the northeast entrance of Yellowstone Park.
