Gallatin River Rafting guide
The Gallatin River is the closest river to Bozeman, Montana, and winds its way along Highway 191. The river offers solid highway access and a number of rapids starting at Moose Flat through the Mad Mile where the river drops almost 100 FPM. There is more access upstream of this Put-In, but most intermediate-advanced boaters will want to challenge themselves in this section. At high flows, most of the rapids become Class IV, especially in the Mad Mile section. In addition to the fantastic whitewater, the Gallatin River runs alongside spectacular limestone cliffs throughout and ends at the aptly named Storm Castle Take-out just before the river flattens out on its way into Bozeman.
