Exxellent short trail with beautiful scenery. Great to take little kids on. Falls are beautiful. Once you are at the falls you need to watch your step as there are lots of sharp, jagged rocks that can be slick. Easy and quick trail.

Beautiful falls at the end of this gradual uphill walk on an asphalt trail. Once you get to the falls if you'd like to add an extra challenge, go over the falls & up a very steep & slippery (but short) trek. You are able to see a great view of the canyon & Hyalite Resevoir.

Easy, paved trail, great for stroll or run... Waterfall is worth it at the end. Plenty of easy exploring to do around the area

This is a short hike with barely over 300 feet of elevation gain. The trail is paved all the way to the falls and is wheelchair accessible. Great hike for all ages and abilities. You can get more details and photos here: www.montanatrailbriefs.com/hikes/palisade-falls

Great hike for young children and beginners. Leads up to a beautiful waterfall. I was able to bring my 3 year old who walked and newborn in a stroller.

The falls are pretty, but other than that not too special. Definitely heavily trafficked.

Quick little walk (I wouldn't even call it a hike) on a trail that is basically paved. Pretty area, probably great with kids. I like to go here late in the evening, walk, then have a picnic as the sun sets in the late summer hours.
