Take the shuttle to St. Mary's Fall and hike pass to St. Mary's fall to Virginia Falls. It's a very flat, 3 mile hike. My family did this without any problem. When you get to V. Falls, keep on going another 15 minutes to the top. There are a lot of fake waterfalls, so make sure you go to the... More

Take the shuttle to St. Mary's Fall and hike pass to St. Mary's fall to Virginia Falls. It's a beautiful hike about 3+ miles round trip. There are up and downs but not too bad. When you get to Virginia Falls keep going another 15 minutes to the top. It's worth the effort.

The trail to Virginia falls is a continuation of the same trail to St. Mary's falls. This is a very doable hike that's about 2 miles or so one way. You get to St Mary's falls first which has a wooden bridge that crosses over so you can get up close and personal. St Mary's falls is just a powerful... More

Excellent Hike! Easy and lots of gorgeous waterfalls. Make sure you go to the very last waterfall - Virginia Falls - it comes off the mountain. you can see Virginia falls from the highway as you past the turnout for it.

We found this to be an easy to moderate hike and well worth it. St Mary Falls were very beautiful and easy to reach, the trail got a tad steeper but VERY achievable en route to Virginia Falls - we both agreed that Virginia Falls was more spectacular so keep on moving! :) We walked as close as possible to...

The turquoise water at St Marys Falls is spectacular and powerful. Don't stop here! Keep going and you will reach the base of Virginia Falls, and a short climb to the top of the falls. Lots of places to stop and check out the view. Bring water! The trail is well marked with signs and there is an outhouse at... More

Starting at the shuttle stop, it is only a 2.2 mile hike each way to St. Mary's and Virginia Falls. Both are beautiful and well worth the hike.

Fairly easy trail with beautiful scenery. Make sure you keep going to the end to see both waterfalls! Loved standing at the bottom of Virginia Falls. Did see a bear in the brush.

It's not too much incline and fairly short. You reach St Mary Falls first and the churning turquoise water is quite a sight! When we were there, there was a bear frequenting the area, but we never saw it. It's pretty wooded though. We saw several beautiful falls and cascades along the way. It's not a long trail, but I'd...

Two mile hike to Virginia Falls which is very worth it. Saw several other waterfalls along the way including my favorite - St. Mary's. The clarity of the water is unbelievable.
