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.

Gorgeous waterfall! Splendid for photographers and videographer types, and for those who just want a nice hike. Bring a tripod and capture some of the waterfall's motion!

We fell in love with hikes with a waterfall at the end and this was our favorite. Very easy hike too which made it even better.

It is a beautiful hike. The parking lot is often full so get there early or ride the free shuttle when it starts on July 1. First stop will be St. Mary's fall. It has a deep green-blue water coming from it and that is what makes it unusual. You keep going about .8 of a mile - to Virginia... More

Took in this nice day hike. You can almost stand right under the falls. Most of the hike is void of views as its in the woods. But, its nice hike and would do it again.

Easy, both in same area off Going to the Sun Road. St. Mary pullout is the trailhead. Meadows, cascading streams and beautiful waterfalls.

Worth the hike to get to the falls. Great opportunity to see wildlife and get some exercise in a pristine area.

Great hike -- St. Mary's Falls and Virginia Falls are both breathtaking, as well as the smaller falls and rapids along the trail between them.

From the parking area for St. Mary Falls, hike a rocky path to Stl Mary Falls. Stop rest and enjoy the view - then reward yourself with a second gorgeous no more than 5 minutes from the first falls. We are not hikers - but this is a must do. It was frigid in the morning, so we came back... More
