At GVLT, we believe being outdoors is the best medicine. And the open space on the east side of Highland Boulevard looked like just what the doctor ordered: rolling hills populated by fox, elk, deer, and sandhill cranes. We approached Bozeman Health, the property owner, with a proposal to create cross-country ski trails for community use, and the administration graciously agreed. The winter trails were a hit, so we returned to Bozeman Health and asked for permission to develop them into single-track summer trails, and Highland Glen Nature Preserve was born. Bozeman Health was an active partner in planning the six miles of trails that now wind through cow pastures, into gullies, and across cultivated fields. Thanks to the generosity of Bozeman Health and the Bozeman Ski Foundation, which grooms the trails in winter, Highland Glen now offers a year-round prescription for getting outside.
Dogs are required on leash because there is extensive wildlife and cattle on the property.
