Beaver Chief Falls connect Lake Ellen Wilson with Lincoln Lake at bottom.
This one of the tallest waterfall in Montana’s Glacier National Park. The falls are also known as Diamond Falls (because as the water falls, it splits into two channels, then converges before it reaches the floor of the valley, forming a jagged diamond shape in the cliff,) and Lincoln Falls, obviously for the lake that it falls into. Prior to 1939, the NPS referred to the falls as Lincoln Falls. The falls require at minimum a 9 mile (one way) hike to reach. It’s a very large waterfall (1291′) surrounded by world class scenery.
