Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Accordion

College/Huffine Trail

Nice Ride

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Nice wide fairly new pavement.
Signage: Warning signs only.
Comments: Start at Montana State University and end on the edge of town. There is one major intersection that needs to be navigated. Nice for a bit of mileage, there are options for more miles by taking one of the intersecting bike paths. Pretty much a level ride.

Highland Boulevard Trail

Need A Hill Climb?

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Nice wide fairly new pavement.
Signage: Warning signs only.
Comments: If starting from Main Street this is a climb to the finish but a nice downhill on the return. Check out trails in the nearby Lindley Park area. Can access them from this trail.

Gallagator Linear Trail

Best of Bozeman

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Nice pavement first 0.4 mile from library and then good gravel/natural surface path to museum.
Signage: Good directional most of the trail.
Comments: This is a great trail starting from the library through a nice city park, then an art park area, into the trees and fields to the museum. Highly recommend. This and Story Mill Spur are the trails to do in Bozeman. Check out the trails in the adjacent parks. Bozeman has done a wonderful job.

North 19th Avenue Trail

Ridin' the GART

July, 2020 by acewickwire

This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Overall good pavement and wide.
Signage: Some warning, no directional.
Comments: Follows along North 19 Ave with a major intersection crossing. Additional other minor intersection crossings. Fine for getting through the area but nothing special about it.

Oak Street Trail

Ridin' the GART

July, 2020 by acewickwire

This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Overall good pavement and wide, with some short sections of concrete narrow path.
Signage: Some warning, no directional.
Comments: Follows along Oak Street with a major intersection crossing. Additional other minor intersection crossings. Fine for getting through the area but nothing special about it.

Bozeman to Bridger Mountains Trail

Ridin' the GART

July, 2020 by acewickwire

This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Most excellent pavement, fresh and new. Doesn’t get any better surface.
Signage: Some warning, no directional.
Comments: This is an uphill climb (west to east) beside the highway. But the trail is wide and new, making it worth the effort. Once at the parking area at the eastern end, it is all down hill back to the west. This starts on the edge of town and ends beneath the big “M” on the hillside.

Story Mill Spur

Ridin' the GART

July, 2020 by acewickwire

This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Bozeman, MT
Trail Condition: Gravel/natural surface. Smooth riding but unusual trail for Rail-Trail/TrailLink, as part of this is just a narrow dirt trail alongside the road. Nothing official looking about this trail, however, there is trail name signage at points along it.
Signage: Some directional, warning, and a few informational.
Comments: This is a rails-to-trails trail and a short portion of follows along the old abandoned rails that are still in place. Passes over a bridge next to an original rail trestle, past an old flour mill and ends at a forest park. Glen Lake Rotary Park has a small network of trails through the thick underbrush and trees. Take your time and wander around on this smooth dirt trails. I startled a skunk and now my bike smells just wonderful! Another diversion alongside the trail is the Story Mill Community Park with a number of easy trails to meander along. This is a good ride. Liked this enough to ride it the following day.

Sacajawea Trail

City Park and Yellowstone River

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Livingston, MT
Trail Condition: Gravel/natural surface. Nice and smooth going.
Signage: Some regulatory and information signs.
Comments: From trailhead through Sacajawea Park the trail is narrow and elevated above the roadway. For bikes better to stay on road and not compete with walkers. The end segment of trail is wider and can handle both bikes and walkers. The trail is right a rivers edge and good views of the river. Osprey sitting on nest atop a tall pole near the trail.
Note: Couldn't find the Sacagawea statue from the trail or as I drove thru park. Must be hidden well.

Myers' River View Trail

Very Nice Ride Along the River

July, 2020 by acewickwire

Location: Livingston, MT
Trail Condition: Gravel/natural surface. Nice and smooth going.
Signage: Some regulatory and information signs.
Comments: This trail is on other side of the Yellowstone River from town and gets you into the country. Sign at trailhead says trail makes a 2 mile loop but I didn’t see it, is a mile out and back. Still very enjoyable ride and away from traffic, past cows in the field, etc. For a short extension a trail to the left at the start will take you to a medical facility 0.2 miles away. Additionally a newly paved trail goes across the bridge and to the edge of town.
