Major Highways In Bozeman
- Just under an hour and a half away, Yellowstone National Park is a wonderland of wildlife, hiking trails and, of course, geysers. Driving along the Grand Loop allows visitors to take in much of the park’s major highlights -- keep your camera ready, because you can usually spot bison and bears on this route.
- The trailhead to Gallatin’s Divide Peak is just 21 miles from town. The hike can be a bit snowy, even as late as July, but the Peak provides stunning panoramic views of the ridge that will make the journey worth the effort.
- U.S. Highway 191 cuts right through town. Once you take it a few miles west, it becomes a gorgeous drive under the expansive blue sky. There, US-191 takes a sharp turn south to follow the Gallatin Canyon along the Gallatin River all the way to the border of Wyoming.
- Running east-west, Interstate 90 is transcontinental, running all the way from Seattle to Boston. The Montana portion connects more than a dozen counties and also connects to the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.
