A short, easy trail hike to a beautiful waterfall. In the spring it is larger from the snow run off. There is a bridge you can use to cross the creek getting a closer view. But it was only halfway up when I went May...More

The water comes from two places: over the top and through a hole. It is easily accessible. You don't want to miss the picture with Rising Wolf Mountain behind the falls.

This short easy trail is nice and the falls quite unique. However, we found ourselves disappointed when we finally got there. Its almost like a rocky grotto with a wadeable pool near the bottom at certain times later in the year. The majestic scenery that...More

Have visited this Falls on many occasions, but have never seen the Falls with full water. It is very beautiful and peaceful. The walk is easy with a narrow bridge to walk over. The Falls is very photographic. Highly recommend.

This the last place we visited before we left Glacier. It is a short hike to the falls so most people should be able to see it. This is also called trick falls because, as it was when we were there, the water seems to...More

Nice little waterfall that is very easy to get to. Just a short walk thru the woods on a natural trail that is very level. If you have mobility issues and want to see a waterfall that is not roadside, this is a good choice....More
