Went fishing at Two Medicine & Pray Lake. The water felt great and not too many bugs at all. No fish... But we did watch a moose cross Two Medicine Lake and caught up with it on the trail

Pretty good views for a small climb and an overall easy hike. We completed the trail in about 3 hours with a 10 year old. The suspension bridge was fixed and the waterfall was gorgeous! There were some buggy and overgrown parts though so I recommend bug spray and long pants.

Great hike good mix of trees, streams, and Meadows. Saw a bobcat and bull moose right off trail and a mountain goat up higher. We continued around Two Medicine Lake for a total of 8.2 miles. Counting a 20 minute lunch break at Rockwell Falls this hike took us 4.5 hours.

Beautiful trail! Pretty easy hike. We took our 8 and 10 year olds and they loved it! They especially loved the suspension bridge and, of course, the water falls at the end.

Two Med is a great area of Glacier where you can beat the crowds elsewhere in the park (we easily got a parking spot at 11am). This trail is a relatively easy hike to a beautiful multi-tiered waterfall. Make sure you head up the smaller trail that runs to the right side to get a closer look at each segment of the falls. We also saw a large moose about 30 feet off the trail.

Hiked this trail September 13th of 2017 and enjoyed it very much. The suspension bridge is a bonus and worth the trip. Waterfall is beautiful and a great spot for lunch.

Logged 8.2 miles! If you haven't figured it out now, sign miles are always less when you use a GPS or even a Fitbit. Anywho... this trail is easy and has some nice rewards. Be sure to explore way above the lower falls that the trail end at, you will be surprised and amazed.

So I did this trail as a multi-path so Rockwell Falls down-back, to Aster Park down-back, to Aster Falls, then back to the parking lot. Rockwell Falls, was fairly simple and straight forward, it takes you though dense overgrowth at times, amazingly open fields surrounded by mountains and wildflowers, and tons of greenery. If you're early make sure you bring a stick or something to get rid of spiderwebs. There is a suspension bridge which takes you over a mini river it's extremely fun since its very unstable (definitely stick with one person at a time on the bridge...or else). The end, ends on a bridge which you cross and it takes you to the lower falls. Though I highly recommend searching for the "not so obvious" path which leads to the upper falls and it's secret waterfall swimming pool hidden by the rocks! I also did Aster Park which was pretty rough after the initial 6 mile hike at Rockwell since it has like 5-8 switchbacks which go directly up....but the top view is very worth it considering it's roughly 3-ish miles round trip. It will give you pretty much a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and lakes - plus there are a lot of wildlife at the top who may end up bothering you for food... I ended with Aster Falls which is at the bottom/beginning of Aster Park which isn't even 0.1 miles long but still well worth it for a look at one of the smaller yet wonderful waterfalls of Montana.

Nice easy 7 mile out and back to nice 2 tiered waterfall. Bonus of another nice Falls about 1.2 miles from trailhead.

A great, easy hike. Saw a moss early on in the hike right by the trail. Good length. About a mile in the trail splits. One sign is marked for Astra Park, the other to Two Medicine Pass. Stay to the right towards Two Medicine Pass. The waterfall at the end is spectacular.

A great hike, just the right length, easy to find, no big ascents, saw a moose in a creek that was off the trail about 40 yards, about 2/3 of the way back. Worth the trip and there was almost no snow as of June 4, 2017.

A bit of the trail is through the trees and blocks the mountain views, Rockwell falls is great. On our adventure we saw a Moose bathing in a nearby pound and one just off the trail. It was a fairly easy hike and once you get to the falls it is a short but steep climb to the many different levels of this waterfall.
