National Forest Are the Perfect Place to Social Distance
Do you want to go on a little trip and social distance from big crowds and enjoy the beauty of Montana? Well, you don't have to travel very far.
Thrillist came out with a list of America's Best National Forests for Avoiding Humans and one of them is located just down the road from Bozeman.
The Custer Gallatin National Forest is a wonderful place to not only enjoy the beauty of Montana but social distance from everyone and everything.
It's over 1.8 million acres of forest just north of Yellowstone National Park and was the place where Robert Redford filmed most of A River Runs Through It.
Not only is there hundreds of different wildlife that live there but also over 2,000 miles of hiking trails over several different mountain ranges to enjoy.
Honestly, sometimes just getting out of Bozeman and enjoying a night under the stars away from it all is not a bad idea.
Whether you are by yourself or bring a few friends, the Custer Gallatin National Forest is great area for everyone. Plus, Livingston is just down the road if you need a little bit of civilization.
I love that Montana has so many underrated spots around the state. Mostly people visit Yellowstone or Glacier National Park but Montana is filled with state parks and national forests that are just as special and I feel extremely lucky to live here.
So if you getting a little stir crazy and want to get out, maybe just grab a tent, your bear spray and some great company and take a little drive to Custer Gallatin National Forest.
