Explore a beautiful little waterfall and mossy canyon area. There is an easy 0.4 mile trail to the falls that follows the beautiful creek and you can continue exploring along the creek. 

The hike to this waterfall is a very easy 0.4 mile trail that mostly follows the creek. Although the walk to the falls is easy, the drive is a long one, even coming from Libby. It is on quality roads but you are unlikely to see anyone else for much of it. 

There is a sign at the trailhead indicating which way to start, from there follow the easy trail to the falls. The area is lush and has beautiful flowers and undergrowth the entire way. The falls themselves come in several drops and if you are feeling adventurous you can scramble to the top and view downstream. You can also keep hiking up the creek but the trail grows increasingly faint and it can be difficult to choose the best path at times. 

Waterfall Coordinates: 48.7527912,-115.3718137

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
