So this hike was absolutely amazing. To start off you need to get a permit to recreate on tribal lands. 13 dollars for a three day permit if your from out of state. You can get it from the gas station just down the road. The stats for this hike are wrong I believe, it gets very steep and is almost to the point where you have to crawl up. Definitely worth it though. Really amazing views

not sure of the statistics for this trail only go to that campground that's trail side, but this trail elevates hundreds of feet and quickly. but it's well worth the effort and a great way to get some beautiful delicious and crisp water straight from the source. the second falls has a great out cropping with a fantastic view out of the valley. If you're in decent shape and not too afraid of heights definitely hike this trail a priority. Make sure you bring bear spray, i saw a 1 or 2 year old grizzly at the trail fork near the top.

Hands down one of the most beautiful hikes I've done in Montana. It's got 2 waterfalls, a ton of green (late April) and it's pretty short. The last 3/4 mi is steep but the second waterfall is more than worth it. At the fork, you can also go left up to a little overlook or presumably to the top of the mountain. It's a nearly vertical climb though so be ready for that.

Certainly was not an elevation gain of 39 feet, after the first 1.9 miles or so it goes just about straight up to the top of the Falls. Definitely worth the hike, the view was gorgeous.
