Spectacular trail. A must do in Glacier.

Great little trail that gains some quick elevation, but it's such a short hike, even young kids had an enjoyable time and the falls are well worth the trek.

A beautiful and fun short hike. Make sure you don't stop till you get right to the falls..you need to climb a bit to get there but its fun and so beautiful.

It's less than two miles of trail but it's quite a lot of elevation. So, leave some time to climb. at the end the last bit is a challenge with lose rock to climb, but it's well worth it. Spend some time at the top and take your time coming down.

Beautiful falls. We were told the hike would be easy, but it was a little more difficult than expected.

Very cool water fall. Hike is straight uphill but not too steep. If you climb over the rocks to get to the base of the falls there is a nice little pool and you can a cool spray

Great end of day hike. Straightforward mile up and back. Amazing bear grass in bloom gives part of the trail a fairy tale feel. Highly recommend bug spray. Lots of mosquitoes if you happen to stop. You get to be up close to the waterfall and stream.

Great hike, climes most of the way, so bring water! Also bring bear spray as saw one just a ways down road from trailhead. Waterfall is gorgeous and had lots of water raging over it from melt off! Many great view along the way of lakes below across highway and surrounding mountain peaks! Can't go to pool at bottom of falls yet due to snow filling creek bed below falls. Also last .2 of trailhead had several patched of snow on it so wear waterproof hiking boots. Also suggest walking stick for last .1 where you cross a long snow covered rocky hill area. Can get just as good of views of don't go last .1 mile while still snow covered right now.

I loved this hike and saw a bunch of Bighorn sheep. Then we continued past it up and into the basin and the views were great and we saw around 11 Mountian Goats

Great short but steep hike up to the beautiful falls. Be sure to check out the billion year old stromatolite fossils to the east of the falls. A beautiful spot!

Short relatively simple trail.

This is a great short hike. Though only a little over a mile to the Falls it is almost a 700ft gain in elevation. The falls are awesome as you can clearly see how they have carved the rock-not only through the years but as the snow melt changes the course and volume of the falls each season. Worth the short hike.

A nice uphill climb to the falls. Beautiful falls, a must do short hike in my opinion. Lots, of bears to see here.

A great hike of moderate difficulty. The waterfall is so beautiful. It can easily be done. Being bear spray. I've seen a black bear once and I'm sure grizzlies are nearby. It has moderate traffic. What I thought was cool was that the rocks near the waterfall had quartz like stone inside them. One of the better hikes of Many Glacier.
