This hike is an modestly easy stroll from the parking lot. Modest elevation gain and two beautiful waterfalls in about 3 miles. Lots of picture opportunities. Careful, the rocks close to the falls are slippery.

It is the first stop on the two medicine park entrance. An easy, short hike through scenic floral and a very stunning view, close up, a crystal clear waterfall and pools.
