Forests and water share an important relationship, but the combination of these two natural beauties sure makes a site to behold! So, for all you hikers and outdoor lovers, here is a list of some of our favorite waterfalls found in National Parks and Forests throughout the United States.
- Bird Woman Falls – Glacier National Park, Montana
Spilling out of the hanging valley above Mt. Oberlin and Mt. Cannon, this majestic waterfall stands out in comparison to the layered rock and emerald pines beneath it year round. The falls lie just west of the continental divide, and the water will eventually flow across the continent and into the Pacific Ocean. The name “Bird Woman Falls” is thought to have originated from Sacajawea, which translates roughly into “bird woman.”
