I hiked this solo on September 17, 2013 at 10:00 am. The trailhead for this hike was a tad confusing. I came in from Many Glacier and found one sign that pointed here to St Mary’s but it really is just a little ways further. The first one was a bus stop of sorts with a small amount of parking....

We arrived early on a September evening as others were making their way back and it was a great experience with the only movement and noise coming from the Falls. We had it to ourselves. A lovely walk with a very rewarding treat from nature at the end before you turn and head back.

Four waterfalls in one hike. How very, very cool!!!! Because of limited parking we arrived around 5 p.m. and there were... More

Loved this activity! Great tour info on the boat, combined with a really great ranger, and lots of flexibility offered during/for the day, totally the best. Glacier Boat Tour & Staff: Boat captain an aging pirate for sure, funny and quirky. Only negative was, as people were gathering at 9:30 am for the trip, I told the staff there was... More

This was our easy relaxing day, as we were tired and soar from some strenuous hikes. The hike was easy and the falls beautiful. There are two powerful falls that stir up the flow. Beautiful blue color. Worth the short hike.

This was the easiest hike we did with our infant and toddler and my 3 year old son walked this hike easily. The falls are very impressive and again, it's a very very very easy hike.

This one everyone said just keep going its not much further. Well worth the hike you actually stand under the base of the falls at the end of the trail.

We hiked here from our Glacier Boat Tour on St. Mary Lake. Beautiful scenery and a nice place for lunch. A recommended must-see while in Glacier.

Being in late August, the walk started off quite sunny and hot. But as we hiked down away from the road toward the river below, the temperature gradually declined. At the falls, you could feel a very refreshing cool breeze off of the water giving you the opportunity to cool off in the shade. The water was aqua blue. The... More

We did the short hike to St. Mary Falls in the afternoon of a long day hiking. We had planned to go to both St. Mary and Virginia falls, but reports of a bear by other hikers led to us stopping at St. Mary falls. This waterfall isn't the most dramatic in terms of height, but the setting and brilliant... More
