Hello my BPL family,
I will be heading out to Bozeman, Mt for 11 days and plan on backpacking while there. I have had a tough time trying to find info on trails in the Gallatin, Lewis & Clark, & Custer. I have looked at the current forest service maps for Gallatin and I'm frankly not happy about using one. I was thinking instead of printing out topo maps, thoughts? I will be starting with a long distance day hike and see how I do at the higher altitude since I will be coming from sea level.
It would be great to meet up with some locals who can point me in the right direction when I fly out there on the 28th.
Any info or websites anyone can provide me involving backpacking those places would be huge! What topo sites or programs do you use? Snow level?
I will be running a 10K in Bozeman on the 4th of July which is smack dab in the middle of the trip thus limiting my days in the backpacking time.
