Morrell Falls

Morrell Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Located at the foot of Crescent Mountain in the southern end of the Swan Range, Morrell Falls is one of the most well-known and visited waterfalls in Montana. You’ll often see families making the stroll together. In addition to its easy access to a tall and awesome cascade, Morrell Falls National Recreation Trail also features a couple of small lakes along the way.

The trail is wide and level and passes through healthy stands of lodgepole pine. After a short climb to a bench, you advance through mixed forest of larch, fir, spruce, and pine. Summer and fall bring loads of huckleberries to the wooded slopes. Consider coming on weekdays in the early morning or late afternoon to find more solitude at this amazing, yet often crowded location. You might also encounter resident black bears and grizzly bears, so make sure you carry your bear spray."
