Palisade Falls is located south of Bozeman, in the Hyalite Recreation Area, just beyond the reservoir. The trail begins at the East Fork of Hyalite Crk., then follows a tributary for approximately a half-mile to a bridge fronting the falls. Palisade Falls is a towering cataract dropping more than 80 feet off a vertical rock wall at the southern base of Palisade Mountain. The trail is wheelchair-accessible, with picnic tables at the trailhead.

Drive south on 19th Ave. to Hyalite Canyon Rd. Turn left, drive up the canyon, and continue past Hyalite Reservoir. At the fork, turn left and park at the signed trailhead for Palisade Falls.
