Sweathouse Creek is one of the less visited and most picturesque drainages along the east side of the Bitterroot Range. The trail becomes strewn with boulders and downed timber on the upper reaches of the route. These difficulties pale in comparison to the views of both of the Sweathouse Creek waterfalls. The Lower Sweathouse Falls crash majestically over a granite cliff, and the Upper Sweathouse Falls glide over a eroded slab of the granite.
The fairly steep hike makes for a 5 mile roundtrip with a 1,400 foot elevation gain, so the legs got a little bit of a burning workout.
