This is a great short hike to a beautiful water fall. The drive up the canyon is as nice as the hike. The trail is paved and great for kids.

We didn't have any hiking gear and didn't need it.

My wife and I made this beautiful hike later in the year before the snow came. The first mile is a steady increase, the second mile is a little flatter and the last mile is a steady increase. The trail is in great with 2 steam crossings without a bridge.

The hike itself follows Cascade Creek and is beautiful and green... their aren't many views on the hike but the view of Lava Lake is beautiful. Going later in the year provided some nice snow capped mountains in the background.

My wife and I did the whole hike in 2.5 hours.

Easy hike, especially if you have little kids. I love the campground at the base- really cozy in those summer nights with the river roaring next door.

The beginning of the hike through the canyon is stunning. Lots of memories with my dad on this hike! Sioux Charlie makes a great lunch stop. Would love to continue on the trail.

This trail is an easy trip and close to Bozeman. Plan for many hours to complete the trip at a moderate pace. I live at the trailhead and have hiked it for 44 years!

This has to be my favorite hike so far. It is pretty strenuous, heading straight up almost the whole way. The trail was well maintained with only a couple small downed trees blocking the way. Saw probably 15-20 people throughout the hike leaving or going toward the lake. The trail flattened out a few times and we thought we were there but we were far from it still. It was well worth it when we got to the top.
