The hike was not difficult and was a good hike for beginners. Liked: Can catch the shuttle at the St. Mary Visitor center and it drops you off at the trail. Disliked: Traffic was bad because of construction at the east entrance to the Going to the Sun Road. It took a long time to get back to the Visitor's... More

This medium length hike takes you past several waterfalls - St. Mary's fall and several other un-named falls that are very nice. Virginia falls is a tall waterfall and the trail takes you right up to the base of the falls. Well worth the time and effort. Takes off from the St. Mary's waterfall trail head on the Going to...

This hike is fairly easy and short. The waterfall is beautiful. You must continue past St. Marys and to go up to Virginia Falls. Along the way you will encounter a number of unnamed waterfalls. Do NOT stop here. Keep going to the top. At Virginia Falls you can stand right next to the falls and get the strong wind... More

Virginia Falls provides an amazing goal for this forested hike through and across a canyon where St Mary Falls provides a beautiful stopping point, a place where you can stop and turn around if time is limited. But if you have the time and can handle the gentle but consistent incline, you should tackle the entire 4-mile (round-trip) hike and... More

I would rank this hike of moderate difficulty with some inclines, definitely doable for families who take their time and people of any moderate fitness level. Along the trail you will pass the beautiful blue/green waters of St Mary's falls first then continue along to pass some more smaller falls along the trail (keep going). You can hike right up...

Do Virginia, St Mary and Barring Falls in one 3-4 mile hike. You could see a bear or an elk if you are lucky. Take insect repellent and wear long pants since the hike is mostly among wild plants and there are lot of blood sucking mosquitoes. View of the falls are incredible. Great photo ops.

A short 2 mile hike in to see this beauty! When we got to the falls there was no one else there we got to view it complete by ourselves.

The hike to Saint Mary Falls and Virginia Falls is a great one. You see many different falls along the way and if you wonder if you have seen Virginia Falls yet, you have not. It is a very pretty falls that you can walk nearby and feel the power, wind, and spray from the falls. Great fun for the... More
