The Hike To This Secluded Waterfall In Montana Is Positively Amazing
If you live in Montana and you’re not a hiker, you’re really missing out. And you don’t have to scale mountains or go great distances to enjoy some of our most amazing trails. In fact, sometimes it’s as simple as taking a scenic nature walk to a stunning waterfall.
The Sweathouse Falls Trail is located in Ravalli County near the small town of Victor.
To reach the trail, you'll turn onto Bear Creek Road off US-93 and take an eventual left onto Sweathouse Creek Road, which will take you to the trailhead.
The trail is five miles long (out and back), but don't let that keep you away.
While there is a variety of terrain, nothing is extraordinarily difficult, and unless you're a total novice, it should be a breeze.
Eventually, you'll come to the beautiful Sweathouse Falls.
The waterfall is a stunning reward, and you can go right up to it.
Here's the best part: Since you'll face an incline leading up to the falls, your trip back to your car will be slightly downhill and much, much easier.
When you see the falls, you know the hardest part of your hike is over.
As with most Treasure State trails, summer is the best season to hike to Sweathouse Falls, although this area is especially gorgeous in the fall.
Dogs can accompany you on the trail, or you can attempt it on horseback if you'd like.
Will you be hiking around Montana this summer? If you need to get back into shape, start with one of these
trails under three miles long.
