Hyalite Reservoir/Palisades Falls

We decided on our way to Bozeman we would take a little side trip to Hyalite Reservoir located about 10 miles up Hyalite Canyon.  It’s a beautiful glacial lake that is a wonderful place for kayaking due to the restriction of no wake, allowing only low speed motoring for trolling.  The area offers campgrounds, hiking trails, waterfalls, kayaking, fishing and picnic areas.  The day we were there it was breezy and a bit chilly for us.  We had a jacket on and couldn’t believe they were swimming and paddle-boarding in this glacier fed reservoir!

The highlight was Palisades Falls.  A short hike with magnificent views and equally magnificent falls!
