The Story Hills rise from the northeast corner of Bozeman. Though private, this property is open to the public during daylight hours. This is a great in-town biking, running, or dog-walking destination with nice views of the town and valley. The area has temporary closures at times; pay attention and be respectful.

 Story Hills, Bozeman, Montana

Directions: From Main St., head north on Wallace Ave. As it bends east, Wallace becomes L St. After crossing over Rocky Creek, before the road takes a hard left, turn right on Story Mill Rd. and continue to one of several parking areas.

I frequently run up the Story Hills road because of its proximity to downtown and killer views of Bozeman. The bike trail strikes just the right balance of being challenging, but also allowing me to race down at high-speed for a quick adrenaline rush. I only wish it was longer! Expect to see canoodling couples and high schoolers enjoying an illicit beer or joint if you go around sunset.

It's great for being so close to town and my dog loves it. There's variety in the scenery and the loop isn't too long for a quick jaunt after work.

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!
