What is Hyalite Canyon?

Hyalite Canyon on the Gallatin National Forest near Bozeman, Montana is the most frequently used Forest Service canyon in the entire state of Montana. As a result, the area requires added management and investment to maintain adequate infrastructure and amenities as well as to educate the public to promote responsible use and stewardship. As one example, to keep the road snowplowed and open for public use from the beginning of winter to April 1st requires and estimated expense of $29,208.

As of March 12, 2011 we are less than a week away from having a more robust web site up and running where you can automatically sign up for our mailing list, find out the latest Hyalite happenings and find ways how you can contribute to our wonderful outdoor backyard. Or, drop us an email anytime at "friendsofhyalite@gmail.com"

See you in Hyalite soon!

March 12, 2010

After an incredible winter season, the Hyalite Road will be closed on March 31st. So there is still time to get out and enjoy the longer, warm days in Bozeman's winter backyard.

We have been busy behind the scenes at "Friends of Hyalite." We are within days of launching a real web site where you can stay up to speed on all the latest things Hyalite and also sign up to help. Please check back soon.

Outreach Coordinator Ashley Lehman and myself are headed out to Hyalite today for a little ice climbing at G1 and to talk to other recreationalists along the road to find out more what inspires them about Hyalite. See you out there.

Executive Director.
