- Be aware, this trail is in grizzly country.
Although the grade is generally easy, there are enough roots that runners will need to pay attention to where they step.
This popular multi-use trail follows a rolling climb up the base of the Swan Mountain Range to reach the impressive Morrell Falls. The nearly 100 foot tall double-falls is definitely the crowning attraction, but runners will also get to enjoy the nearby Morrell Lake, a healthy forest of mixed conifers, and a chance to spot a variety of wildlife that occasionally wanders the area. For those who are feeling adventurous, there's also a steep climb that reaches some great views above the falls, just be cautious!
There are a number of dispersed campsites located near the trailhead and Morrell Lake.
Flora & Fauna
