Trapper Creek Falls is located about 2 miles north of Trapper Peak, the highest mountain in the Bitterroots. Numerous scrambles over deadfall and a ford that requires good river shoes at high water are an added challenge on this lightly used trail. Majestic views of craggy ridges and cool, healthy forests give you beautiful scenery to enjoy the entire hike. The rugged access makes this seldom-seen waterfall a good place to find solitude in the mountains.
