Lincoln Lake Trail takes you through diverse and changing temperate rainforest to a glacially carved amphitheater where Beaver Chief Falls, the tallest trail-accessible waterfall in Montana, makes its awe-inspiring descent behind the crystalline waters of Lincoln Lake. The long day-hike or overnight backpacking trip is a challenging, but extremely rewarding trek that sees few hikers due to elevation change and a sometimes muddy, overgrown trail. Lush forests, mountain views, and a chance to see wildlife all add up to make this a classic Glacier waterfall hike.
