Beaver Medicine Falls, Akaiyan Falls, and Feather Woman Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This is one of Montana’s most difficult yet rewarding waterfall dayhikes. Gunsight Pass Trail gains about 3,800 feet in 6 miles, taking you from the shores of Lake McDonald to the alpine splendor of Edwards Mountain, Gunsight Mountain, and Glacier Basin.

You follow crystalline streams through lush forests to three large, dynamic waterfalls. Extend your visit to some high-mountain lakes and to an observation point of Sperry Glacier. There is a good chance of seeing wildlife along the way—deer and black bear inhabit the lower elevation terrain and mountain goats and grizzlies prefer the higher areas."
