  Hyalite Recreation Area | Rocky Mountain Expediton | Bozeman Jeep Car Rentals Hyalite Recreation Area Turnoff | Rocky Mountain Expediton | Bozeman Jeep Car Rentals Hyalite Canyon is a very popular place with both locals and tourists.  One of the most amazing things about our area is how quickly you can be out in nature.  A very short distance from the downtown area, you can be up in Hyalite Canyon in about 30 minutes.  This area is located just south of Bozeman and contains many hiking trails and camp grounds.  The ‘main’ area of the Hyalite Recreation area is the reservoir located 8 miles up a paved road.  At this spot, there is a parking lot where you can park and stretch your legs.  If you head off down any trails, please do take bear spray with you. There are some really nice trails in this area that you can do.  The closest one is just north of the parking area near the pavilion called the West Shore Trail.  This is a short 2.5-mile loop that takes you out to the edge of the reservoir and back out to the parking lot.  Other Popular trails include Palisade Falls Trail and Grotto Falls Trail.
