Cascade Creek is a bouldering area about half way to Lava Lake. Several large gneiss boulders lie in a talus field on the south side of the canyon ~ 40 min to 1 hour from the trail-head (hiking time depends on physical fitness and if you know where you are going). There are about 60 established problems as of fall 2012, with room for many more. This area is an alpine zone featuring lots of moss and lichen covering the trees, the ground, and is also home to many pikas. Please try not to disturb this delicate zone more than is necessary.
From Bozeman drive south on highway 191 towards Big Sky. At the 35 MPH bridge turn right onto the dirt road just before the bridge. Park at one of the three parking areas next to the trail-head/bathroom. Please do not block the turn around or gate at the end of the road even if the parking is full, park on the west side of the road in a few pull outs or in the pull out across the bridge.
