Running Eagle Falls is a highlight of a trip to Two Medicine. In the spring water rushes over the upper fall so thick that the lower fall is completely hidden. Later in summer, as flows decrease, the water seems to change course and flow almost exclusively out of the lower fall. It's easy to see why this waterfall used to be named Trick Falls. This area holds great religious significance for local Blackfeet tribal members. The park is in the process of creating a nature trail here to highlight the cultural significance of this unique spot.

Flat, easy walk. As the park ranger said, "if it wasn't raining you could push a wheel chair". Even with the rain, snow, and puddles it was a worthwhile walk to a stunning waterfall.

This was a great way to start our vacation in Glacier National Park. It's about one half mile round trip, and the only person we couldn't participate would be with crutches or a wheelchair. But, there are plans I read, to make these falls accessible...More

This is a quick >1 mile hike that is very level to a beautiful waterfall that has a "trick" to it. When the water is heavy, it gushes over the top, but on lower water days, like the day I visited, it travels through a...More

An easy trail goes to the falls, which are a lovely, serene setting. You can stand in the water (but not for long - it's cold!) and picnic.

Only 0.3 miles out to this tall rushing waterfall with clear water showcasing the colored rocks. Worth a brief stop.

A short little walk with amazing views it was so pretty and not crowded like the rest of Glacier! The Bathrooms were also clean and that's always a plus.

This is a short trail that is mostly level. The waterfall is pretty, and it is interesting in that it seems to come from behind the rocks. Note that bear spray is recommended in this area.

This will be the first stop after leaving the entrance to Two Medicine. It's only 0.3 mile hike into this incredible piece of nature. To get the true effect of this marvel of nature one needs to visit Running Eagle Falls late in the season...More
