The easy day-hike to Ptarmigan Falls offers spectacular vistas of the lofty peaks and glacially cut valleys of the Many Glacier area. The popular trail traverses subalpine landscape that gives you good opportunities to view wildlife. While the falls are partially visible from the trail, a little scrambling down a steep path gets you a much clearer view.
