Park
“This trail is perfect for hikers of all ages. Hike through the woods to reach Ousel Falls, a beautiful waterfall and the perfect family photo opportunity. Ousel Falls is named after the Ousel Bird (Cinclus mexicanus), more commonly known as the American Dipper. This hike is rated as easy and is 1.6 miles total on an out and back trail. ”

Food
“Beehive Basin Brewery is a new microbrewery located in the Town Center of Big Sky MT, right next to Roxy`s Market. They operate a 7 barrel brewing system that was created specifically for them by friends at Portland Kettle Works in Portland, Oregon. They also run a small tap room where they invite you to come and taste some of their hand crafted brews. At this time they do not have any food service, but you are welcome to order in from one of Big Sky`s many restaurants.”

American Restaurant
$$$
“One of the most consistent restaurants in Big Sky. With mid level prices ($20-35), great, consistent food and service, this might just be the local favorite. Classic Americana Bistro. ”

Trail
“This is a great hike leading to a few beautiful mountain lakes. It is a perfect half-day hike and is generally pretty easy but be warned that the last bit is steep, and you are at fairly high elevation. To get to the trailhead, drive west onto Highway 64 from the junction of highway 191 and travel approximately 9-10 miles. Continue until the end taking a right immediately before the Moonlight Basin gate onto Beehive Basin Road. Follow this windy road for two miles to the parking area and trailhead. ”
