Hilly Hyalite Permanent Populaire

Entry and Waiver Forms

Route Map, Profile, and More

Another fun permanent populaire I got approved this summer.  This route starts and finishes in Belgrade, takes a meandering path across the Gallatin Valley to Hyalite Canyon where a nice 10 mile long 5% climb awaits.  The ride up the canyon is always beautiful with the cascading Hyalite Creek alongside taking away the heat of the day along with it.  The route turns around at the scenic Hyalite Reservoir.  Then a downhill cruise to Bozeman and drag race down Main Street where there's usually lots of traffic, but also lots of bikes.  The ride back to Belgrade lets you unwind on some nice quiet roads.  I've done this permanent several times already and I really enjoy it.
