Best Places to See Fall Colors in Bozeman

Best Places to See Fall Colors in Bozeman

1. Lindley Park

One of Bozeman's most beautiful parks, Lindley Park is filled with gorgeous trees and fall colors. Take a stroll down the walking path, or even better, start at the bridge by the library and follow the path to the top of Peets Hill. 

2. Peets Hill

A classic Bozeman viewpoint, Peets Hill offers a view over the historic tree-lined streets that surround downtown Bozeman . Not only that, but the walking path itself is lined with beautiful fall foliage. 

3. Gallatin Canyon

The minute you enter Gallatin Canyon, you can't help but notice the spectacular colors lining the banks of the Gallatin River. Go on a hike on one of the many trails or just enjoy the drive through the canyon. 

4. Hyalite Canyon

Known as "Bozeman's Backyard", Hyalite Canyon has a reservoir, waterfalls, hiking trails and countless mountains to climb. In the fall it's the perfect place to go get some fresh mountain air. The best fall colors in Hyalite are in the lower part of the canyon, lining the creek as you make your way up towards the reservoir. Take advantage of the pullouts on the side of the road and stop to take it all in!

5. Willson Avenue

Arguably one of the most beautiful streets in Bozeman, Willson Avenue is lined with trees that are more than 100 years old. Over the years the trees have created a canopy over the street that becomes a beautiful display of fall colors come fall. 

6. Cherry River Fishing Access

One of our favorite spots to enjoy the Bridger Mountain views. The Cherry River fishing access trail loop winds towards the Bridger Mountains and past the East Gallatin River where the fall colors are just amazing!
