This is a must! It is an easy hike with beautiful views. The little river you cross was fun to step across the rocks. The waterfall is beautiful and a great place to rest, have a snack and take pictures.

Pretty easy flat walk through beautiful Forest and an exceptional waterfall. Clearly marked path. We saw a bull mouse about 5 ft. Off the path!

The view of Two Medicine from the boat dock and parking area is tremendous. The hike to the falls is through bushes followed by open areas of meadows. We were a little paranoid of bears in the bushy areas, but happily didn’t run into any....More

This hike was recommended to us by the fellow working at the camp store you see when parking by the lake. It was a nice hike to do with two children. We loved walking through the fields and seeing all the flowers blooming. We were...More

There is a boat that you can take back but you have to walk to the other end of the lake. Aster falls is about half way. But if you continue on the trail you can hike to Rockwell falls and Twin falls. I figured about 8 miles... More
