The scenery along Canyon Creek Trail displays the typical ruggedness of a Bitterroot Mountains canyon, but with less fire damage than most other places. Canyon Falls is the tallest waterfall on the Montana side of the range. In addition to the falls, the views of peaks and valleys from the ridge are breathtaking and a fine recompense for the short but difficult climb. Continue hiking to Canyon Lake, and make an off-trail approach to the brink of the falls for a closer look.
