Trail shared by Jake Bramante

This short, steep trail leads to a beautiful waterfall tucked beneath the rocky cliffs.

Runner Notes

Bring bear spray. Not a great run as it's just short and steep.

Description

This short, steep trail begins right off of the Many Glacier Road right before you reach the Many Glacier Hotel at a well-signed trailhead. The trail starts in a wide open, grassy meadow with stunning peaks in all directions.

The trail begins level, then steeply climbs through a forest, popping out at the base of the cliffs where the waterfall pours over as a stream of water. Turn around and enjoy the view of Lake Sherburne, Cracker Flats and the surrounding peaks. A little scrambling can bring you right up to the waterfall.

Flora & Fauna

Meadows in the spring have flowers. Bears frequent the meadows and Bighorn Sheep frequent the cliffs in this area. Animals such as moose can be spotted near the lake.
