Highway 89 South Pedestrian Trail Description

The Highway 89 South Pedestrian Trail begins south of downtown Livingston and parallels U.S. Highway 89 for nearly 3 miles. Its southern end is adjacent to Carter’s Bridge and the trail is sometimes referred to as the Carter's Bridge Bike/Pedestrian Path. A wide grassy median separates the paved pathway from the roadway and the surrounding views are undeniably rural; you'll be traveling through open fields with forested foothills off in the distance to either side. The trail also loosely follows the Yellowstone River.

One day, the trail is hoped to extend farther south to Gardiner at the doorstep to Yellowstone National Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available a short distance from the southern end of the trail via on-road riding on East River Road to reach the Carters Bridge Fishing Access Site.

Highway 89 South Pedestrian Trail Reviews

Ridin' the GART

This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Livingston, MT
Trail Condition: The 2.7 miles from Livingston south needs maintenance, serious maintenance in some areas (overgrown, weeds up through pavement, cracks, etc.) The trail is passable. The last mile is new and in excellent condition.
Signage: No directional, some warning.
Comments: This trail parallels busy highway 89 into Yellowstone National Park. However, a good part of it is a little distance from the road, decreasing the busy highway distraction. TrailLink lists this trail as 2.7 miles long, however, an additional mile of trail has been recently added to the trail, making this 3.7 miles long.
