Trail Maps
Main Street to the Mountains

We will be printing an updated 25th Anniversary Edition of the Main Street to the Mountains trail map in 2015. It will include the new trails, connections, and amenities that have been added to the trail system over the last 3 years. Stay tuned for a release date. The 2012 trail map is available at the GVLT office and local retailers. It showcases:

  • Trails, parks, playgrounds, and climbing boulders in Bozeman and the surrounding area, from the “M” to the western edge of town, and from the Snowfill Recreation Area to Sourdough Canyon.
  • Three detailed maps providing specific information for Drinking Horse Mountain and the “M”, the East Gallatin Recreation Area, and the Gallagator and Sourdough Trails.
  • Sixteen featured trails with detailed information about each trail and its amenities.

Maps are sold for $2 each at GVLT and at local retailers (retailers listed on side bar of this page). All proceeds help the Gallatin Valley Land Trust continue to expand and improve our Main Street to the Mountains trail network.
