Trail shared by Jake Bramante

A short spur leading to a lovely waterfall, then steeply to a wonderful overlook.

Runner Notes

Very steep trail that is fine for a faster climb, but not necessarily running.

Description

This short spur trail breaks away from the Two Medicine Lake South Shore trail and travels through a dry forest to the pretty, cascading Aster Falls. From there, the trail enters into more pines and steeply climbs with limited views until you reach the top of a ridge.

From the ridge, you have a wonderful perch looking down on Two Medicine Lake and across to the magnificent Rising Wolf Mountain. Turn around and look up the Aster Creek drainage to a crown of rocky summits in a variety of gray, tan, and red rocks.

Small forest birds such as chickadees, warblers and flycatchers. Huckleberries are also found in this area.
