In the spring water rushes over the upper fall so thick that the lower fall is completely hidden. Later in summer, as flows decrease, the water seems to change course and flow almost exclusively out of the lower fall. It's easy to see why this waterfall used to be named Trick Falls. This area holds great religious significance for local Blackfeet tribal members. The park is in the process of creating a nature trail here to highlight the cultural significance of this unique spot. « less

This was a very easy hike from parking lot. Go early for beautiful pictures. We went late in day and got sun in our eyes but it still was wonderful. You can venture on some of the trails along the bottom and get some great pictures, get in water, skip rocks. Lots of flies though. fishing opportunities too. Great for... More

Easy walk from the parking lot through the woods - we kept singing to keep away any lurking bears! Lovely view at the end, well worth making the stop. Interesting board with the legend of Running Eagle. Well worth making the stop and walk.

Short, flat walk to this fall. Read the Indian legend of the falls posted in parking lot before you go. Loop trail coming back to parking lot is short but scenic with some beautiful trees. This was in the Two Medicine section of the park

This trail is so short I almost hesitate to call it a hike. There are restrooms (hole in the ground) at the trail head and plenty of parking. Path is loose gravel and especially when you get to the river and base of the falls, the gravel gets pretty coarse. Can't imagine pursuing a stroller or wheel chair over this.... More

This was an easy hike, less than a mile round-trip, to a beautiful waterfall and stream. It was perfect for us because we were hiking with two small children. It is well worth the short hike to the falls for any traveler through this area. We loved it and will be back!

This is located in the lesser known Two Medicine area. The falls are also known as Trick Falls as this wonder has water dropping behind and over to create the double waterfall. Depending on the time of year and water volume, you get a continually changing view. This is a level, less than 1 mile roundtrip hike to a really... More

This was an easy trek, less than a mile round trip with almost no elevation gain. Falls were neat. We were here first week of September, so there weren't "double" falls, but it appeared the water was rushing from a cave. Well worth stopping to see. Note: it is listed as a handicap accessible trail, but in order to get... More

In the Two Medicine area, Running Eagle Falls is a short .6 mile round trip hike/walk. Well worth the short walk for this great view of the falls. I saw a couple of deer on the way down to the falls.

In September, some of the falls can be a bit underwhelming- this one was a lot of bang for the "walk" (very accessible!)
