    Beautiful place and has an excellent little food stand at the entrance. We all got huckleberry ice creams and lemonades and they were soooo good!  more »

    Beautiful views. The wood & cable swinging bridge is high above the river in a picturesque area. On the far side, you can walk down to the river and safely wade in a shallow area. Don't miss the stromatolites at the far end of the bridge - they are well over a BILLION years old. The coffee & snack bar at the trail head is we'll run.

    Nice walk through the woods and rocks the climb around on by the river. Most secure swinging bridge I've ever walked. The falls are dramatic and dangerous, so be safe.

    Great stop! If you are in the area, it is totally worth the trip. The falls are beautiful and the bridge is fun.

    Nice walk great scenery!! but if you have a dog you'll need to carry it up and down 64 steps to get over the railroad bridge

    The falls, trails, and swinging bridge are a sight to see! The falls are majestic and the scenery is beautiful! It would be a great picnic spot on the rocks above the falls (we had a 2 and 6-year old so this wasn't really an option). It is not a difficult hike/walk to either area but it does get rather long if you really investigate all of the surroundings. We drove for 2 hours from Kalispell on vacation and it was well worth it. Go to Eureka afterwards and get homemade ice cream at G's if possible - the best ice cream EVER! These Georgians will be back!
