On the northeastern end of Livingston, the Myers' River View Trail parallels the east bank of the beautiful Yellowstone River. The mile-long gravel pathway includes a lookout over the river and offers a nice mix of wooded scenery and open vistas. Enhancing the experience are natural benches, wind pipe whistles, and interpretative signage that lets travelers know about the wildlife they might see here.
The trailhead is located on East Park Street, just east of Veterans Bridge over the Yellowstone River.
We are disappointed to see that the current management plan seems to be about manicuring the grounds, rather than preserving the natural features. Lots of old trees have been cut and brush cleared away, leaving less cover for wildlife. If someone wants to spend money on this wonderful trail, how about getting patrols out there to enforce the leash-laws for dogs. My husband was bit by an off-leash dog on the trail this morning. No, it didn’t break the skin, and he didn’t call law enforcement, but it isn’t the sort of experience one wants to have when walking on a trail where leashes are required. Cool place, would hate to see it shut down because of people who don’t like the rules there.
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.
