This trail is listed as "hard", but I'd call it more "moderate". Very pleasant trail. The falls aren't overly exciting, but if you continue to the overlook, it's well worth it. Just past the falls though, the trail gets more steep, so heads up. Lots of wildflowers along the length of the trail. Signs indicated bear activity, but we didn't see any. Lots of bugs, so bring the bug spray!

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.

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.
