Walk for the Health of It
Fridays in September
Getting outside and going for a walk can be one of the easiest ways to stay healthy. With 80+ miles of trails right in Bozeman, your backyard can be your gym! If you're like most people, you need something or someone to hold you accountable to staying healthy. Let the 'Walk for the Health of It' walking group be the motivation and encouragement you need!Learn More

Annual GVLT Events
Summer Trails Challenge

National Trails Day
June 3, 2017
Want to get your hands dirty? Grab a shovel and volunteer for National Trails Day. Every year on the first Saturday in June, hundreds of community members join GVLT for a morning of work to maintain or build our community trails. This event is free and open to the public.
Summer and Fall 2017
There’s no better way to explore the Main Street to the Mountains trail system than with a group of new friends. These one-hour guided trail walks will help you discover new paths. There’s a topic or activity for every age and interest! Walks are hosted throughout May, June, and July.
Our annual supporter social is a fantastic opportunity to meet other trail-loving folk. Renew your annual gift or give what you can, enjoy a beer, and help yourself to the Build-Your-Own Trail Mix Bar. Each year at Trail Mix we honor an individual with the Trail Partner of the Year Award.
