Elevation Gain: 75 m (250 ft)
Time and distance are return.
This is a nice, easy, low elevation trail in Glacier National Park
which involves two waterfalls, two creek crossings (one suspension bridge). For a low elevation trail, this one was in excellent condition. It's located in the Two Medicine area, in the southeast corner of the park, a quieter area than tha very busy Logan Pass and Many Glacier areas.
The trail runs through a mix of aspen forest, spruce forest and open meadows. 2005 was an excellent beargrass year and this trail was thick with beargrass. Aster Falls (last 2 photos) is a short (500m) diversion from the main trail (well signed). Aster Park Viewpoint is a further 1.5km beyond Aster Falls, but is much steeper than the rest of this trail, but not that long. It provides a nice outlook over the Two Medicine Lake and valley.
Rockwell Falls is impressive even in early September so it would likely be spectacular in spring. Bring your tripod.
Return the way you came, or proceed another 5km to Cobalt Lake.
