Gallagator Linear Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Located in Bozeman, this trail runs southwest from South Church to the Museum of the Rockies on Kagy Boulevard. Highlights: An easy, off-road family ride in town; duck ponds; Museum of the Rockies. Tread: Wide gravel path on old railroad bed.The Gallagator Trail has official access points at the corner of South Church and Story Street, on east Garfield, on South Willson just south of Grant Street, on South Third just north of Kagy Boulevard, and at the Museum of the Rockies. Many other informal paths and openings allow access from neighborhoods on both sides of the trail. Let’s start at the corner of Story and South Church and work our way south."
--Will Harmon, Mountain Biking Bozeman (Falcon Guides).
"The Gallagator Trail follows the route of the Gallagator Railroad Line, which took passengers between Bozeman and the Gallatin Gateway and abandoned in the late 1930s. The path begins at Burke Park at the base of Peets’ Hill and crosses several bridges over Sourdough Creek and Mathew Bird Creek. The trail ends at a picnic area by the Museum of the Rockies. There are several street crossings along the route."
