Bozeman is home to a work-hard, play-hard population, and it’s quite common to see locals in parking lots, pulling on the hiking boots and trail running shoes for pre- and post-work adventures. Weekends are often spent in the mountains speeding down trails on mountain bikes, accruing vertical on the ski slopes, or chasing trout in remote streams.
