Very beautiful sight as all of Glacier National Park is. Some of the hiking is more difficult than others

It is an easy hike to a beautiful water fall. The hike itself takes you through beautiful scenery and past little ponds made by beavers. The wild flowers are spectacular. Don't miss it.

This is a great family hike, with meadows and ponds (might see a Moose with calves if you are lucky), streams and waterfalls, and at the peak a great view of Two Med Lake. The whole hike, with time for lunch and playing around the waterfalls, was about 2-2.5 hours. The switchback to the top has a moderate elevation change... More

A wonderful, lovely hike. Pretty steeply uphill at first, then levels out the rest of the way. Moose like to hang out around the 3 ponds this also have beaver dams (though we were too late in the day to see any). As you go through the meadow, look for the lone tree on the left with bear and mountain... More

Easy trail for our 1st day. We hiked to higher falls which got us away from most of the folks. We also went part way to Two Medicine Lake, but turned around due to injury. This trail was very flat with great vistas!

Not a strenuous hike. Looks like prime bear habitat, so be cautious! Goes through a really beautiful meadow. The falls are nice. Not huge, but refreshing. We went on to Aster Park View. The hike form the falls to there is quite strenuous, but doesn't last forever. It's a spectacular view from the top! Definitely a good one to do... More

A quick and easy hike will get you to Aster Falls. Certainly not the most scenic of falls in the park, but it's an easy walk to get there.

Decided to hike Aster Falls after a late start from camp. Well maintained trail with decent though not spectacular views.

The length is perfect, the falls are beautiful. Bring bug spray, there are lots of bugs buzzing around.

We hiked on a cold, rainy day. Area had lots of flooding the days before we arrived but trail was in great shape. Very easy hike up to the waterfall and very pretty. Due to the rain we probably saw water as fast moving as it gets here. Trail got steeper past falls but still not too strenuous. Once you... More
