Red Rock falls are part of the swiftcurrent trails, which initially might throw people off looking for it. The hike itself is not hard, with only a few elevation changes that are not that steep. On our hike, there were 3 different moose alongside the trial. One crossed in front of our group and stayed close for photos. At the falls, there are two viewing areas. The first is at the falls lower side, which is where the main trial takes you. The upper brink of the falls viewing area can be done by a little rock climb trial or circiling back to come in on a back trial. None of them or technical, but if anyone has mobility issues, it might be a struggle. Late spring, the falls will be roaring and can be heard from sccross the lake at times as you hike toward them.
We visited this place in July 2022. This waterfall trail is located on the Many Glacier Entrance side of the park. There are 3 trails that begin in the same area. So watch out for the one you want to go. This trail forn the most park is easy. You walk though thick forest area which means not great panoramic views of the vast park. There are some overgrown areas but aren't that intrusive. You can take your kids on this trial, we did, since it was just 1.8 miles one way from the parking lot with an elevation gain of just 200 ft. Once you make it to the falls, there is plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view and the sound of the water hitting the rocks. The kids loved to explore the area and walked around the top of the waterfall fall where you can go as well and see a nice clean turquoise pool. The kids let us there lol. I woul say this waterfall is the one where the kids really explored. I would recommend this to the entire family. A bit long but not bag of elevation gain.
