Description

This short spur trail breaks away from the Two Medicine Lake South Shore trail and travels through a dry forest to the pretty, cascading Aster Falls. From there, the trail enters into more pines and steeply climbs with limited views until you reach the top of a ridge.

From the ridge, you have a wonderful perch looking down on Two Medicine Lake and across to the magnificent Rising Wolf Mountain. Turn around and look up the Aster Creek drainage to a crown of rocky summits in a variety of gray, tan, and red rocks.

The waterfall is ok, and the views of the lake are nice.
