Running Eagle Falls ,Montana ,USA



Address -: Running Eagle Falls ,Glacier National Park  ,Glacier County , Montana , USA

The waterfall receives its nickname, "Trick Falls", because there are actually two separate waterfalls in the same location. During the spring run-off water rushes over the top ledge for a 40-foot drop, while obscuring the lower falls. However, as the volume of water decreases by late summer, and the upper falls "dries up", water continues to rush through a sink hole at the top of the cliff before flowing out of an opening in the cliff face, thus creating the lower 20-foot falls.
Running Eagle Falls is located just 1.1 miles west from the Two Medicine entrance in Glacier National Park.
The trailhead parking lot is just off the main road going to the lake– it is essentially impossible to miss. It mimics parking spots on the side of a city street.
This hike is handicap accessible, so the entire family can easily take in the sights. The waterfall(s) are a mere 0.3 miles in and the same way back.
The path is wide and very obvious to follow and you don't have to wade through the creek, as there is a wooden bridge that makes crossing a breeze.
