The Gallatin Range is home to large numbers of endangered species and ancient petrified forests.

Hyalite Peak is the second-highest peak in the northern Gallatin Range (Mounts Bole and Chisholm are the highest), and it occupies the southern apex of the vast U-shaped Hyalite headwaters. Hyalite Peak’s gentle triangular shape and large north-facing snow bowl are plainly visible from Hyalite Reservoir, beckoning skiers and hikers to make the approach. Today, two excellent pack-trails run from Hyalite Canyon into Squaw and Swan creeks. The trail into Swan Creek crosses directly over the summit of Hyalite Peak, the monarch of Hyalite Canyon.

Just hiked up Hyalite Peak and ate lunch on the shore of Hyalite Lake... beautiful!

What's your take?

So, what do you REALLY think?
Have pics of this place? Toss 'em in here! Keep it clean, though, this is a G-rated establishment!
