Ousel Falls Trail - Big Sky, MT
Ousel Falls Trail is a very well maintained, hiking / walking / running, 1.7 mile out and back trail to beautiful Ousel Falls in Big Sky, MT. While the trail has a couple of small elevation climbs, for the most part it can be enjoyed by everyone of all ages. The first view of the falls is even wheelchair accessible.
Upon arriving at the falls, there are several additional lookout points to hike to from top to bottom. Many runners will use Ousel Falls as a destination point for a long run and cool off in the pools just below the falls.
Overall, Ousel Falls is just a great, quick, easy trail with excellent scenery.

Ousel Falls easy hike (plus a burger and a beer at Scissorbills saloon) - Big Sky Montana
My (Shane's) mom has been begging us to take her up to Ousel Falls. We finally did for... Father's Day. Actually, my dad won a $50 gift certificate to Scissorbills saloon at the resort, which is not very far from the trailhead and he was excited to put it to use. So we went down and got a burger and a beer. Laura got the Jamaican Jerk salad, which she let me taste and it was awesome.
Join us as we get soaked by the rain and the waterfall on an easy hike with a big payoff!

About Me: Last year, I fell in love with skiing and picked up a part-time seasonal job at a Montana Ski Resort for the Winter 2016/2017 season. Prior to moving to Montana, I lived in NYC for five years and worked at a large advertising and marketing agency. Originally from Florida, living near the Rocky Mountains has been an incredible opportunity. Throughout my time in Montana, I'll be documenting our adventures. In addition, my boyfriend and I are backpacking Europe for two months this summer. Thanks for following along the journey!
In this video we journey deep into the woods as we explore the hiking trails near Big Sky Montana.
Trails: Ousel Falls, Beehive Basin, and Lava Lake.

This 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom home is 3,672 square feet offering a huge vaulted great room with stacked stone fireplace and post and beam construction giving the home the cozy feel of a ski chalet. This piece of real estate is situated on a little over 4 acres of prime land near the Big Sky Town Center.

The recreation in this area is virtually limitless with fly fishing and rafting on the Gallatin River, Yellowstone National Park less than one hour away, skiing at Big Sky resort, hiking, mountain biking and a whole host of outdoor recreational activities.
Montana's busiest airport, Yellowstone International, is just one hour away as is the city of Bozeman which offers a diverse array of shopping and Montana State University serves as a cultural and economic driver.
The privacy of this home tucked in and amidst 4-plus acres of trees makes for a very private and secluded location.

All of the Big Sky cultural events including the 4th of July fireworks and Big Sky Rodeo are less than a mile away.
Let’s not forget the skiing. Big Sky began in 1974 and has expanded and grown into America’s biggest skiing, with more total acreage than any ski resort in the U.S. and the biggest vertical drop. The other nice thing about Big Sky is that it has been less populous when compared with other Western destination resort alternatives like Jackson Hole, Park City, Deer Valley and Sun Valley. They call Montana “the last best place” for a reason.
The fly fishing here is unparalleled anywhere in the lower 48 States, in fact, you would have to go to Alaska to find anything more pristine and untouched.
The nearby Taylor Hilgard wilderness, Lee Metcalf wilderness and 3 million-acre Yellowstone National Park create a buffer that is unparalleled anywhere in the country, this place cannot grow wild like so many resorts have.
If you would like further information about 338 Grey Drake Road or any Big Sky real estate then simply contact Ernie Hall of Big Sky Properties at 406-539-8585.
