“A trail through open meadows along the Many Glacier Road used by the horse concessionaire.

Bring bear spray.
Creek ford and the loose rocks are rather large and hard on the feet. Look out for horse concessionaire traffic.
This trail is used almost exclusively by the horse concessionaires. The trail starts at the Apikuni Falls
trailhead on the south side of the road. It travels mostly through meadows where the great views are only interrupted by small stands of aspens. It then passes near the stable, then travels along a rough dirt road before crossing over the entrance road to the stables.
From here, it is a fairly wide and uneven trail that's very messy due to the frequent horse traffic. It enters the forest where it fords a feeder creek, then begins to climb up to the road that head towards the Many Glacier Hotel
. It does have a nice view of the falls on the way up.
