Discovery Walks

New to town? New to trails? Simply want to explore with some new friends? Discovery Walks are for you! These one-hour, guided walks will help you discover the 80+ miles of trail on the Main Street to the Mountains trail system. These walks are a great introduction to the world of activities and hobbies right outside your back door.


May and June- Virtual, August and September-In Person


Trails throughout the Main Street to the Mountains trail system in Bozeman






5/13/2020 Update: While we wish we were launching the Discovery Walks season this week, we made the hard decision to postpone our spring in-person walks until the fall, likely August and September. We know that many of you are turning to the trails right now. Whether you’re relying on your favorites or eager to explore new trails, Discovery Walks encourage you to engage with your outdoor spaces. We are working with volunteers and our friends at the Montana Outdoor Science School to bring you virtual offerings on our social media accounts, Facebook and Instagram. We will re-post those links on this page so you’ll have access to them whenever you’d like. Keep turning to the trails. They are yours to lean on now, and always.

Thank you to the Mysun Charitable Foundation, City of Bozeman Parks and Recreation Department and our many nonprofit partners and volunteers for making this program possible.
