Dogs of all shapes and sizes live in and visit Big Sky - chihuahuas, labradoodles, black labs, golden retrievers, huskies, terriers, and mutts. They all love it here because they get to enjoy the great outdoors just like you and me.
It's no surprise, but your dog wants to get out and experience the great outdoors. So take them on one of the many dog friendly hikes in Big Sky. Dogs make excellent hiking companions and they may even love hiking more than you do.
The Gallatin National Forest has trails everywhere. Grab a map and explore the numerous dog friendly hikes in Big Sky Country. Dogs are not allowed to hike in Yellowstone National Park.
