Running Eagle Falls is a highlight of a trip to Two Medicine. 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.

Great stop not too far off Highway 2. Have to pay the park admission fee ($25) but worth it for a short hike that ends in a lovely spot with options to spend a couple hours exploring, wading, skipping rocks, etc. bathrooms available at the trailhead.

These falls were simply awesome. To learn the history behind this waterfall made the place even more special. The color of the rocks in the water was beautiful The hike to these falls was very short.

This waterfall is truly unique the way that it comes out the middle of a large rock wall. I have never seen anything like it. It is a very short walk through the forest on an easy path. It is listed as handicap accessible. You can get close enough to see it in a wheel chair, but you need to... More

This is a very short and level hike to an interesting falls. The water drops into a cave from above, and seems to shoot out the side of the cliffside cave. If you are in the Two Medicine area, you should definitely stop to do this very easy walk. Stream is rocky and fun for the kids to play in.

This time I visited in summer when the water was coming under the natural arch; earlier in the year some also comes over the arch. There's a shaded nature trail that adds a bit to the very short hike.

Don't expect to hike to the waterfall, it is just a little walk. Depending on the day the viewing area for the falls can be crowded. With that said, this is a Must-Go, it doesn't take much time and I have never seen a waterfall like it before.

Short flat hike, low water only shows a short fall, high water makes a double fall. Great history and worth the walk. Good for families with young children. Benches for sitting are strategically placed along the trail.
