Lava Lake - Cascade Creek
301-499 Cascade Creek Rd
Southwest Montana has some spectacular hikes, many of which are found in Gallatin Canyon. The hikes to Lava Lake and along Hell Roaring Creek are among the most popular. The trails to Rat Lake and Ousel Falls provide shorter, more level trails for the younger, older, and out-of-shape crowds. Driving back to Bozeman and out to Hyalite Canyon, you can access the area’s most popular hike, the trail to Hyalite Lake. The five mile trail takes you up 2,000 feet to the small lake, with eleven waterfalls along the way.
