McDonald Creek Trail is a 5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Essex, Montana that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from April until October. Horses are also able to use this trail.
As described, this is a very easy hike that's great for all ages. Lots of beautiful sights. Cool stones and clear water along the bank. This was the last hike we went on before leaving the park. We were there at the end of the season so there weren't many other hikers which was nice. Not sure it would have been as fun during busy season, but still one worth doing even if it's busy.
Easy hike but the north end just kinda faded away... wasn't sure if I was at the end since the trail narrowed abruptly and became more over grown.
This is an easy walking trail. Well marked, pretty well traveled and popular. Great photo opportunities along the water.
Great easy hike. Very scenic and great picture opportunities. Follows the creek with some ancient rock formations. Awesome experience definitely recommend the hike. Trail is easy and clearly identifiable. I would think it is a great ski or snowshoe trail.
