Description: Beginning in the Little Missouri Falls Recreation Area, this out-and-back trail offers access to the scenic Little Missouri Falls. It first crosses a native stone dam across the river. The hiker then faces a hill of steps in the trail which lead along large cliffs high above the river. The trail provides a view of the area above the falls on the left and a rock formation on the right. This part of the trail is a historic wagon trail which early settlers used to traverse the mountains from Langley to Big Fork. About 1/4 mile up the trail, a vista of Little Missouri Falls opens to the hiker. This trail is also a section of the Little Missouri Trail listed under Albert Pike Recreation Area.
