Hiking and Trail Running

Hyalite contains a wealth of trails to explore, offering everything from handicap-accessible paths to old logging roads to arduous single track trails and windswept ridge traverses. Whether you're in the mood for a relaxing stroll to view a multitude of scenic waterfalls, a run though quiet woods and up rocky peaks, or a multi-day backpacking trip your adventure awaits in Hyalite. Always carry bear spray, be prepared for changes in the weather, and follow the Leave No Trace principles.

If organized events are more your style, the Big Sky Wind Drinkers sponsor a 50-mile race on the “Devil’s Backbone" each summer and the XTERRA Wild Horse Creek triathlon and Tour de Hyalite are multi-sport competitions that include running.
