I’m from the NE and got a 3 day training contract to come to Bozeman in mid-November. Excited as I’ve never been to Montana. Interested in tacking a couple more days on (that’s all I can do currently) and seeing some mountains. Saw this old thread https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/52058/
with some day hike suggestions in August, but wondering if folks in the area have different suggestions/ things I should be aware of for November. Considering Yellowstone but as the whole area is new to me I’m wide open. Hope to come back with the family on a summer cross-country trip.
Thanks in advance for any help.Sep 30, 2017 at 1:44 pm #3494058Robert RBPL Member

I was there for a week of fly fishing last year and you’ll be surrounded by mountains. Check out Hyalite canyon which is close to town. Also while you’re there go to the Western Cafe. You’ll soon realize why it’s a local favorite. Obviously if you fish, the world renowned Gallatin River is there (certain scenes from A River Runs Through It were filmed there).Sep 30, 2017 at 3:13 pm #3494075Ken ThompsonBPL Member

Thanks for the tips, Robert. I’ll be traveling with a coworker who would be more interested in day trips, low mileage, but I may have an opportunity to explore a bit solo and maybe do a quick overnight.
Ken, I thought he moved to Wyoming this past year? But hey, I’m totally down for an invite! ;)
