Running Eagle Falls (aka Trick Falls) is one of the most unusual and special waterfalls in the world. The main falls (bottom) flows under a natural rock bridge. At higher water levels during the spring water rushes over the natural bridge creating two waterfalls in one!

The waterfall is located in Glacier National Park and is named after Pitamakan, or Running Eagle, a female warrior leader of the Blackfeet Nation in the early 1700s, who experienced a four-day vision quest in the mountains high above the falls. Running Eagle led war parties on many highly successful raids, and was the only woman in the Blackfeet tribe ever to do so, or to be given a man's name.
