The Upper Gallatin Valley is a vast, open meadow that meanders along the Upper Gallatin River for many miles. This gives you the option of choosing your own distance. The relaxing hike through the scenic, treeless valley offers excellent trout fishing and wildlife viewing. The trail eventually leads over Bighorn Pass, which can be seen looming in the distance at the end of the valley.
