Great hike to first waterfall. Took about an hour up. Hot in the sun, but very nice in the shade. Found places to let dogs get in water, but creek is still flowing fast. Some areas of the trail were muddy, but they were easy to get around.

A fantastic day hike in the Bitterroot. The first 1/4 mile or so is along a road. Most of the hike is along the creek. It was nice that probably 2/3 of it is shaded. Great wildflower. Lots of lupine and beargrass and a few paintbrush. The views at the first large falls are great. Be sure to keep going past it for the second Falls.

Amazing!! Hands down one of the best hikes I have been on. The water fall is beautiful, there is a small part of the trail that is fairly wet and rocky.

Great hike to do at the end of may when all the snow has melted/is melting; waterfall was huge due to this and absolutely beautiful! Easy parking and walk to trail. Be prepared for some muddy areas on trail but over all a great hike!

Hiked to the falls today, trail was narrow but packed. But don't step off the trail, knee-waste deep in most places. Beautiful day and weather, we even witnessed a few small avalanches.
