Grandest Canyon in the Northern Rockies A landscape of sheer cliffs towering 1,000 feet above a ribbon of blue water. World class fishing and a place where wild horses still run free. Bighorn Canyon is a place where imagination meets reality. Bighorn Canyon has unrivaled recreation possibilities.
The hike is short, but steep and strenuous on the way back. Beautiful waterfall with a big pool at the bottom. Just wish that the smokers from Gillette had at least had the decency to pick up their cigarette butts. Picked them up in their stead. Leave no trace people!
I just completed hike this again with a group of 19 other guys who's ages ranged from 18 to 66 years old. Needless to say, the young guys made quick work of the descent and ascent, however most of the guys ages 40 and up had to stop frequently on the way back up to catch their breath due to the steep incline. Per usual, the scenery at the bottom was amazing! I was surprised nearly 25 people at the falls (although we were there on a Saturday). Most were swimming and sunbathing, and a couple were scuba diving looking for gold dredging opportunities. Apparently there are still some active gold claims farther down the stream that issues out of the pool at the base of the waterfall.
