We took the 8am boat to the trailhead. Great little hike with two beautiful waterfalls. We hiked to the upper lake for a quick view and came back to catch the 10:15 boat back. Nice easy hiking.

This is a very easy walk and just a nice way to see Two Medicine . For us, we like these easy ones after a tougher or longer hike the day before. We did the Ranger-led hike which added good information.

Easy trail. Nice walk. We did Ranger-led for good insight into plants, geology, Blackfeet lore, animals and the specific mountains and lakes.

Pretty falls, easy hike. Not too crowded at 3:30pm on a Thursday- but it was quite windy this day so less people were taking the boat. A little buggy but manageable with buy spray. A few easy bridges to cross.

Nice, fun trail. My husband and I took the round trip boat tour with a guided hike to Twin Falls. The boat ride is 20-25 mins. The guided hike was 45 minutes to the falls. The guide (Nathan) provided great information about the history of Two Medicine lake area. We highly recommend the guided hike. The hike was slow with the 25-30 people but the info provided made it worth it. We hiked on our own to upper Two Medicine lake. We did not see any wildlife other than squirrels (no bears!) heard birds. Nice views of the mountains at the upper lake.

We added the detour to the Falls into our loop of Two Medicine Lake. Definitely worth the trip!!

Twin Falls is a diverting detour for those on their way to Upper Two Medicine Lake (it is a significant detour if you are heading up Dawson Pass from the west boat dock and probably not worth the added mileage). It is worth the walk from the Upper Two Medicine trail, either on your way up or down, as the level walk to the falls is not tasking in any way. The detour is about 20 minutes depending on how long you bask at the falls.

I loved this hike! You start off on a boat ride to cross Two Medicine Lake that takes you straight to the trailhead. Not only are the falls incredible but huckleberry and bear grass patches are abundant. Below is a description of the trail from the Forest Service: After arriving at the boat landing your hike begins along a short section of boardwalk as it passes over a sensitive boggy area. Although I've never seen one here, this might be a good place to spot a moose, especially during the morning hours. A short distance later youll reach the South Shore Trail junction which connects hikers with the Two Medicine Pass Trail. Continue going straight here. The early portions of this hike passes through an area thick with ferns, thimbleberries and huckleberries. Roughly 0.75 miles from the boat landing the trail crosses a footbridge. A short distance later youll reach the North Shore Trail which connects hikers to the Dawson Pass Trail. Hikers should continue going straight at this juncture, which now becomes the Upper Two Medicine Lake Trail. Just past the junction the 7620-foot Pumpelly Pillar comes into view, directly in front of you. The glacially carved, cone-shaped rock is named after Raphael Pumpelly, leader of the Northern Transcontinental Railway Survey party that crossed Pitamakan Pass in 1883. Roughly one mile from the trailhead youll reach another creek crossing. Just beyond this point is the side trail to Twin Falls. From the junction its an easy walk of less than a tenth-of-a-mile to the falls. As you make your way up to the falls youll pass several huckleberry patches along the way.
