Florence Falls Trail is a 9.9 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near East Glacier Park, MT that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from April until September.
This is a mellow hike with a lot of fun bridges and little spots by the river to enjoy. The waterfall is spectacular and well worth the trip! This trail does not have a significant elevation gain, the majority of it is the very first part of the trail. You head down as soon as you begin the trail, which means that the very last part of the hike is a mild uphill incline. The trail is easy and the bugs were not overwhelming, there are several bridges and good resting spots. The foliage is very overgrown once you split off from the Gunsight Pass trail on the the Florence trail fork, some of it was above my head and I'm 5'7".
The first waterfalls you come to, (Deadwood Falls), are absolutely captivating! Also, the Reynolds Creek campground is very nice. Make sure you bring plenty of water, the hike in is easy and downhill, but the hike out is steep!
