Many people of all skills levels would be successful on this hike. It is paved in part and has a mostly gradual incline with a waterfall at the end!! It's a fairly short hike (a little over a mile roundtrip) as well so that adds...More

Must see. This is a easy hike for all ages. Nicely traveled trail and the waterfall is amazing. We will be going again when we are in Bozeman.

What a nice find and just a short drive. A walk to the falls helps work out the kinks after a day of airline travel.

The road to the falls was impassable with a small car. Just after the dam, the road is unpaved, and since we live on a gravel road, we tried it. But the car (and us) was really getting bounced around. No signs to tell us...More

Easy hike, bring water. If winter think cold. Summer camera time. Amazing vistas, wildflowers, small safe wild animals, get wet if hot. There are campgrounds available, but if empty think BBQ. Beautiful creeks everywhere to play. Kodak moments. Folk's in MT are laid back &...More

It all depends on how fit you are. I would say the average is about 45 minutes each way. There are a few steep areas don't be afraid to stop and catch your breath. Have fun! and remember to take some pictures.
