Bit slick on the boardwalks. Beautiful walk on either side of the creek.

Saw wildlife every time. Saw a beautiful owl and hawk this time. Walked out onto the little boardwalk. Was cold, but gorgeous.

Make sure you have at least 4 hours to ride/read all the signs or you’ll be rushed

Easy, ADA accessible trail. Shaded with large cedar trees. We were not planning to stop, but decided to at the last second. Good for kids too.

More of a stroll than a hike, there isn’t a lot to see on this trail, but it does serve a purpose.

The entire trail is boardwalk and pavement with handicap accessibility throughout. The loop winds through heavy forest, and the park has installed signs to educate walkers about trees on the trail. The entire path is covered by the forest canopy, so there is no exposure. Overall the trail is reminiscent of an eastern US nature trail.

If you have children, mobility issues, or are just tired from some other trails, this is good way to spend a half hour or so. It can help you warm up for a more strenuous hike and learn more about the trees that populate a portion of the park.

Beautiful! Stunning! Spectacular! Exciting to get through the tunnels! Loved the ride!

This was an easy trail with great views of the city and golf course. The signs explaining the history of the copper mill and town were very informative.

Great afternoon outing. Trails are not person or car specific so you can choose either. Highly recommend driving and heading out onto the boardwalk.

Awesome trail. Best ridden on a bike with suspension. First time I rode it was on my cross bike. Quite jarring. I've never taken the shuttle from the bottom back up to the top. The gradient is easy enough to ride back up. However, probably not recommended for pre-teen youngsters.

Purchased the season pass this year. Should get in a few more rides before they close for the season in late September.

We weren’t exactly sure where to park so we just went to the loop. Was pretty. Dog enjoyed it. Several dead birds on the trail. Nice change close to town

The Running Eagle Falls Trail is an enjoyable, leisurely 0.6 mile spur trail that culminates at a small waterfall. Parking available at the trailhead, fee required to park in Glacier. This pass can be purchased at the small drive-by ranger station by the Lower Two Medicine Lake road.

Having landed in Great Falls two hours prior, my father and I took a quick rest stop near Two Medicine Lake. The evening was upon us with sunset approaching quickly, so a long hike to Dawson Pass or Scenic Point would've been imprudent. This 10-minute walk seemed perfect. Running Eagle Falls sits a third of a mile past the trailhead; the present walk takes you through a nature trail along a creek. As another reviewer stated, it's a "walk in your backyard" difficulty that a toddler could complete.

The falls itself is normally comprised of two flows, one that tumbles over the rock formation, and the other that emerges from a cave-like area inside the formation. Low flow in August saw only the latter running. Fed by glacial melt, the stream is an opal blue, picturesque and perfect for photography. I found ample spots to shoot from, most of which required bypassing the wooden onlooker deck. My long exposure shot turned out beautifully.

Two Medicine Lake feeds this water source, so the falls should be running year-round. If you're making an exploratory pit stop- as dad and I did- make sure to venture to the falls for a quick Montana introduction. However, if you're spending a day near Two Medicine Lake, nearby Pitamakan/Dawson Passes and Scenic Point would be significantly more rewarding hikes. Little more than a decent outing, but quite glad I got to see the falls!

Short, nearly flat loop through a cedar grove with a few other types of conifer trees. Mostly asphalt or boardwalk. Popular because it is the easiest trail in Glacier National Park. Many people also hike this trail as the start of a hike to Avalanche Lake. Overall, a pleasant short walk if you are not up for one of the park's harder trails.

Nice paved trail for an afternoon walk with a little bit of history along the way.

Easy evening walk with the dogs, plus a history lesson. Would recommend.

We hiked this trail and there’s a nice little bonus hike here to go out to the lake. Beautiful historic cedars!

Get there early - 9 am parking will go fast. The hike is relatively easy but the views when you get there are worth it.

Easy, beautiful as always!

had planned to walk this with my kids, but the weather didn't cooperate and when we got there we saw a sign advising us that we are in bear country and bear spray was recommended. I would have brought some had i known this sooner. so we drove instead. we mostly saw ducks and just a few other birds. the wildflowers were pretty. we're did walk out on the boardwalk and my kids saw an otter they said. the visitors center was closed due to staffing issues.

A nice walk through a red cedar forest. It is quite a busy place even after 6pm!! If you are after solitude, this is not a place for it. Still a nice walk and nice scenery to boot

Easy trail but very relaxing with great views. It was so nice just to sit along the stream.

For such an easy trail, this one was so beautiful! Get there early to beat the crowds. Pretty early on in the trail, we had an encounter with a beautiful black bear that came to the creek for some water. He was within 20 yards and casually walked on, then ran across the trail. We also saw a deer in the distance. This truly is a beautiful little stroll through a lush ecosystem.

its super easy.. very beautiful.. take ur camera with u plz.. its like just walk in ur backyard easy

Lots to learn and great for a quick jaunt. We were expecting something less paved and more nature-y, which is the reason for the 3 stars. Good for elderly, children, and those who are less athletic!

Rode this trail a few years after the rails were removed and before all the trail work. Even with a few tunnels missing and a bridge or two missing. It's still a great ride in one of the most beautiful rail routes of the west.

As of June 24,2018 trail is closed due to construction although the sign says it will open up mid June.
