Wonderful hike on a gorgeous October afternoon. Hike provided a perfect cardiac workout for a fifty-something. Spectacular vistas, especially looking westward into the more primitive areas. I'll post some pictures later.

Love love love this trail! Perfect little out and back with an absolutely stunning view of Blodgett canyon and easy enough to do with my mom who has a total knee.

This hike is a nice gradual climb up to the falls. The waterfall is beautiful! A great short hike, definitely not too difficult.

Beautiful hike. Made it almost all the way up until we saw fresh bear tracks going along the trail, so we decided to turn around because we had no way to protect ourselves.

Once you locate the start of the actual Trail it is a nice gradual climb with plenty of switchback. Hikes it with a friend on 10-9-2016. It is worth the Terrain and I will return. I did leave a Token of Gratitude for all the beauty this has to offer. Would recommend to not being children due to the stop off at the Trails end. Allow plenty of time to enjoy the Beauty.

Amazing views once you get to the end. The whole trail is sheltered by Lodgepole pine. The trail has lots of switch backs but is pretty gradual and easy. You can tell people have cut the switchbacks and have taken a more direct and steeper climb. Once you get to the top there are about 3 Rock outcrops you can walk out onto that have sheer drop offs. Bring layers or a jacket since it's windy at the top. I went first week of October and the Larch trees were starting to turn yellow. I'd love to go again once they have all turned yellow. The views would be even more stunning.

Iconic Montana views with so little effort...it shouldn't be this easy

This is such a beautiful hike that it took my friend and I four hours because I was constantly stopping for pictures. When we hiked it on September 28th the waterfalls were flowing just enough water to listen to its ambiance, but we're calm enough to jump around on the rocks exposed out of the current.

Short hike with great reward at the end. Get out and do this while the fall colors are out, it's gorgeous!

Helpful tip: Park in the ample space by the "visitor parking area" sign. From there, follow the road up where you'll pass a quarry. The road leads right to the trailhead.

Great hike, lots of beautiful fall foliage right now. There are a few little swimming holes that would be great to take a dip in during the warmer months! Will definitely do this hike again.

Great trail, great for newbies.

Really nice day hike. The terrain changes frequently which helps to keep things interesting. We didn't go all the way to the lake but, stopped at the falls for a break and headed back out. Did this hike today, last week of September; gorgeous colors throughout the trail. There were two tricky spots where we had to cross deep, standing water. Keep an eye out for a good walking stick to help cross, if you don't already have polls.

very worth it. My favorite hike in the bitteroot.
