The Gallagator Trail, also known as the Linear Trail, occupies an old railway line that extended all the way to Gallatin Gateway. The rail line was referred to as the Gallagator by its passengers for its slow speed. The line saw its last railcar pass by in 1978 and after a decade of hard-fought work by community members, the City of Bozeman purchased the land as a linear park. This trail is an important connector between the Montana State University campus and Downtown Bozeman. Langhor Park is situated on the trail and is home to community garden plots, a climbing boulder, a natural playground, and a pollinator garden. Many people use the Gallagator Trail as a way to commute to the University or to Downtown Bozeman. You’ll always run into a friend when you’re using this popular route. If you’re looking for a longer walk or ride, the Gallagator connects to trails south of Kagy and to Peets Hill, Lindley Park, and Highland Glen Nature Preserve to the east.
