If one could sum up the spirit of Bozeman, it would be to say that the town reflects the same sense of adventure that the city’s namesake, John Bozeman, demonstrated. The community has developed many recreational sites both within the city and in the outlying areas. Parks and hiking areas have been developed with thought to providing nature experiences for young, old, and people using wheelchairs. An extensive urban trail system crisscrosses the city and is used for hiking and biking. Biking enthusiasts have created bike trails in outlying areas, too. Local shops rent mountain bikes by the hour, day, or week.
