    Directions to Trailhead

    The Florence Falls Trail is a captivating journey through rushing waterfalls like Deadwood Falls and cool grey mountain backdrops from Gunsight and Fusillade Mountains and Mount Jackson. Pass through thimbleberry patches and chest-high vegetation, which are an excellent source of food and a good hiding spot for grizzly bears, so keep an eye out and make some noise! If you can climb up some steep rocks, you will be able to stand on top of Florence Falls and watch the water crash down over 30 m.

    Route Description for Florence Falls Trail

    Florence Falls Trail is a delightful and visually stimulating hike through waterfalls and with views of the mountains. Beginning your hike, you will leave the roadside parking area and head down 203 m to Deadwood Falls. In 1.9 km, you will find Gunsight Pass Junction, where you will take a right and cross a long suspension footbridge arriving close to the St. Marys River. At 4.7 km, you will see some of the best views of Glacier National Park and mirror pond with a backdrop of Gunsight and Fusillade Mountains and Mount Jackson. Coming up to 6.3 km, you will be rewarded with the cascading waters of Florence Falls after walking through some chest-high vegetation (watch out for bears!). This is an out and back trail, so proceed the way you came when you are ready to head back.
