I had been to Running Eagle (also called Trick Falls) back in 2003 but it was in August so you didn't get to see the double falls. The trail had thimbleberry bushes on both sides of the wooded area of the trail. Believe it or not, you can actually make jams and such with the thimbleberry. It is many times confused with the raspberry. Both are members of the rose family.
On the trail I ran into a New Yorker I had met up at Logan Pass. That's what fun about GNP is that it's small enough you may run into someone else you've seen along the way. There was only one other couple on the trail at around 10AM.
The falls were flowing pretty ferociously as there was snow melt going on for the middle of July. There was much more snow on the west side but nevertheless, for July, water volume was pretty high.
We only spent a very short time as we were heading for Two Med to catch the next boat ride. But it is a rewarding destination walk that ANYONE can do.... even when only the lower Falls are falling. Photos later. And aren't you surprised...15 mins in and out for me is amazing.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
