Description
The lush grasses of Paradise Valley were ideal for raising cattle, and the valley's warm Chinook winds protected the area from bitter Montana winters. When the Northern Pacific Railroad laid tracks in 1882, both the cattle industry and Livingston flourished. Among the town's more memorable residents was Calamity Jane.
Livingston is at the head of Paradise Valley, through which flows the Yellowstone River and around which rise the Crazy Mountains and the Absaroka and Gallatin ranges of the Rockies. The area offers opportunities for wildlife viewing, hunting, fishing, rafting, backpacking, camping, skiing and snowmobiling.
A scenic drive, US 89, connects Livingston to Gardiner and the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Livingston was the original entrance to Yellowstone.
