A beautiful .3 mile hike to two waterfalls is located 2.5 miles south of Neihart, Montana in the Little Belt Mountains.


Memorial Falls

Two Falls One Hike 

This is a rewarding hike for all ages! Memorial Creek canyon is surrounded by amazing cliffs and lots of trees for shade with very dramatic light contrasts making for great photos. The trail is in good condition, and is only about .25 miles up a narrow footpath to the lower falls. Then, depending on which way you go, another 3-10 minutes to the upper falls. At the lower falls, there is a resting bench and a junction for two paths to get the second falls. There are no alternative routes leading off the main path, which tapers into heavy bushes and steep inclines shortly after the upper falls. Enjoy this marvel of the Little Belts and remember to respect this wonderful resource!
