    Columbia Mountain Waterfall Hike

    Haymoon Employees share a recent summer adventure! A two mile hike to a serene and gorgeous waterfall that is located on Columbia Mountain. Actually, there are a few small waterfalls along the trail. However, the largest waterfall was the key reason for our hike.


    The trailhead for this hike is located 13 miles and about 20 minutes from Haymoon Resort. The turn off is an unmarked dirt road. Take the first right after the House of Mystery building. Follow this road until you see the Columbia Mountain Trailhead and parking area on the left, this is about 0.2 miles from the highway turn off.


    This hike is a bit of a climb, but has wonderful views of Columbia Falls, Whitefish, and other parts of the valley. Our goal was going to the waterfall, but you can make a much longer (and more challenging) hike of it by continuing to climb to the top of the mountain. This is an out and back hike. 


    About 2.5 miles into the hike you will have to cross a stream. Either by forging across the water, balancing on floating logs or crossing a large fallen tree. After testing the methods, we suggested crossing using the fallen tree as we preferred not to get our feet wet. (See Photo #1 below)


    Immediately after the crossing of the stream, look to the right of the cascading water. There is a very minimal and almost unnoticeable trail that is parallel to the water. (See Photo #2 below.We missed this trail originally and added an additional 3 miles to our hike).


    Follow this trail until you reach the magnificent waterfall. (See Photo #3 below) For a small group there has been room to enjoy a small picnic lunch. While listening to the roar of the falls and getting an occasional misting of water. The photos speak for themselves, but get out and enjoy a true Montana adventure!


    ** As much as we enjoyed our hike we suggest checking the daily weather conditions, as well as wearing bug spray.**

    January Update!

    Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and a very Happy New Year!

    I thought things might slow down here as we headed into Winter, but I was very very wrong. We may have moved a lot of our operations inside, but we continue to move non-stop on our remodel here at Haymoon Resort! Our North Star Cabin turned out absolutely beautiful and has seen several groups of the most wonderful guests over the past few weeks. It has been so fun reading all of your notes in our guest book and on our chalk board. We are thrilled that you all have loved the place as much as we do. Knowing that people are having the most amazing time with their friends and families makes all the hard work we continue to put into the place well worth it. ​

    Our Deer Moon and Merry Moon apartments or guest quarters as you may call them, are completely gutted and awaiting new plumbing this week. We basically have a clean slate to work with in these two spaces, so we are having fun designing them and know you all are going to love what we have come up with! In addition, we are working to make the Merry Moon apartment wheel chair accessible, with a beautiful, large, ADA compliant bathroom. We can’t wait to be able to accomodate everyone here at Haymoon Resort! 

    The other parts of the Merry Moon and Deer Moon building will include a rustic bar area, which I’m currently referring to as the multi-purpose room, as it will be a great setting for small meetings, presentations, cocktail hour, and other small receptions (or whatever else you come up with!), as the double doors can open up to our soon to be well landscaped court yard. Everyone here is very excited about the bar area and this space, so stay tuned for updates and pictures as it all comes together, it’s going to be really neat!

    The other part of this building is the laundry room, a space most of you will never see, but it will probably end upbeing the most important room on the property because it will ensure that you all have fresh, clean linens. It will be the home base of our cleaning operations, making sure all the cabins are fresh and clean and ready for your arrival! 

    I will post pictures of the Merry Moon and Deer Moon apartments as they are completed (check our Facebook and Instagram for updates)! They will be available for rent starting in May 2019, so I would book now as I’m sure they will book fast once they are completed. The North Star Cabin is already booking for Summer and is filling up fast so get your dates booked now if you are trying to visit us in the prime Summer months. We still have availability this Winter too, and we know you will find the North Star Cabin cozy after a day on the slopes, backcountry, or whatever Winter activity you choose…there are so many! 

    Please reach out to us with any questions you may have, we are so excited to meet you all and can’t wait to bring you more great updates on our progress here at Haymoon Resort!

    The Beginning
    Haymoon Resort was purchased in April of 2018 after sitting vacant for several years. We had heard stories of how beautiful this place once was and wanted so badly to give it life again. After moving up to Whitefish in May of 2018, we got to work, and it has definitely been a lot of work! Our end goal is to make this place a luxury resort where people can come together, relax, enjoy everything the Flathead Valley has to offer and make some of the best memories of your lives. We have been here 6 months now and have accomplished more than we could have imagined in that timeframe. Though there is still much work to do this Winter, we are so excited to have guests in our North Star cabin, we know you are going to love it! There is so much to do in the Flathead every season, and we can’t wait to have our guests return year after year. We will keep posting updates as cabins are completed, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any thoughts, ideas, or questions. If you would like to book our North Star cabin now or if you are planning a trip or event for next year and want to see what we have available starting in April 2019, please visit our lodging page. We are excited to meet you!
