The easy hike to Twin Falls follows the scenic north shore of Two Medicine Lake with gorgeous views of the waterway and surrounding mountains. The trail passes through grassy meadows with abundant wildflowers and enters cool forests with thick understory. Twin Falls descends a rocky slope in two parallel cascades that join at the base. The ice-cold water invites you for a refreshing dip on a hot day. Many hikers also visit this popular destination by taking a 45-minute ferry across the lake and then walking the remaining distance to the falls. Watch for wildlife including grizzly bears throughout the hike.
