Running Eagle Falls is a beautifully unique waterfall where Two Medicine Creek pours at two separate levels—a lower underground channel gushes out of a cave while an upper channel spills vertically over a high ledge. The aspect of the waterfall changes drastically with the seasons. Situated only a mile from the park entrance at the foot of tall peaks, Running Eagle Falls is a great way to commence your Glacier visit. Even though it’s located in a less-crowded region of Glacier, its attractiveness and easy access makes it a very popular destination.
