The Two Medicine Lake area has over a dozen great hikes, many of which are strenuous and long. One of the shortest and still quite pleasant hikes is this spot along Two Medicine Creek that includes a nature trail and a short hike to a beautiful and unusual waterfall.

The parking area has great exhibits (displayed in both English and Blackfeet languages) about Running Eagle, a female Blackfeet warrior and leader. The trail has two routes: a nature trail with exhibits about the local plants and how they were used by the native people, and the trail to Trick Falls. This trail crosses the creek and climbs up a bit to the base of the falls. When the water is high early in the season, this becomes a double falls, with water flowing over the top and out of a large opening in the rock below. By midsummer, the upper falls have dried and just the lower falls are running.
