Big Sky is home to amazing hikes, and you are in luck if you hope to explore paths featuring wildflowers, roaring streams, distant snowclad peaks, and clean, crisp mountain air. Tie on your hiking boots and explore the miles and miles of trails in Gallatin National Forest or close neighbor Yellowstone National Park. From the Resort's Mountain Village, you can enjoy a scenic lift ride up the mountain and then choose one of several self-guided nature trails, or explore the area with a guide on one of our guided hikes.
Our Basecamp Guides carry Bear Spray and are educated in Wildlife Awareness to provide peace of mind while you explore the great outdoors.
We offer private 1-hour and 2-hour guided hikes for groups up to 8 people. Pick the length that is right for you. You and your hiking guide will determine the best route around our gorgeous mountains for your interests. See our online booking for prices and times.
This is a multi-use trail system (motorized vehicles and horses not allowed). Bikers must yield to hikers. Pets must be under control at all times. Please clean up after your pet. Smoking is prohibited.
Leave No Trace
Be sensitive to your surroundings. Wet trails are vulnerable to erosion and damage. Stay on existing trails, respect signage, and please pack out your trash.
Know your equipment, your ability, and the area in which you are traveling. Be prepared and carry the necessary gear for changes in weather and other conditions.
Be Bear Aware
Are you prepared to avoid one? Be alert, make noise, carry bear spray, avoid hiking alone, and do not run. For more information and tips, read about Bear Safetey on the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks website.
