Sweet House Creek
This stunning hike takes you high above the valley as you follow the canyon back along the ridge. As the trail gets ready to drop down into the lakes it will pass waterfalls! The trail is easy for most of the 7 miles back to the lakes and becomes a bit more challenging as you make the descent into the lake. From Florence, MT drive south on Hwy 93 about 1.5 miles and turn right (west) onto Sweeney Creek Loop. Where the road turns left (south) after one mile, continue straight (west) for about 0.4 miles on gravel past residences to a junction
This is a beautiful hike! Don't let short milage fool you. It may be only 2.5 miles to the falls but you gain 1500 feet in elevation! So don't listen if one of your guides tells you it'll flatten out. The effort is worth it though! The trail leads you to a gorgeous 60 ft waterfall with views down the canyon into the bitterroot valley!
