Aster Park is a 3.7 mile out and back trail located near East Glacier Park, Montana that features a waterfall and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is best used from April until October.
This was a fairly easy hike to start. We saw moose and ate lots of yummy berries along the way. Berries = bears so look out and make noise. The hike up seems steep and unforgiving but it does get better and once at the top you will love the view and Columbian Ground Squirrels will happily greet you as you eat your lunch at the top!
My 11 year old son and I did this hike 3 days ago and it was a nice hike bit not my favorite. The waterfall was not in my top favorites but the view at Aster Park Lookout was good. Easy hike to the waterfall and then it goes up hill for .7 miles.
Very easy hiking. Amazing views from the Aster overlook.
nice easy hike to the falls. Be sure to go up the extra 1.2 to the overlook, that is an amazing view!
The last 0.8 mile is indeed quite steep. Watch for loose rock at the top. Fabulous views of Two Medicine lake.
