You start by hiking to and looking at St. Mary's Falls, but you must go on to see Virginia Falls as it is so much more beautiful and breath taking and worth the extra hike. I took so many pictures there.

A trail of a few miles, not a difficult hike if you don't mind going up. Beautiful trail all the way to the falls. Check for details at the visitor enter.

We took in all of the falls on our hike - the only drawback was not knowing which one we were at since there are two unnamed falls. Plus we entered the trail at a alternate location due to road construction. At first, we thought Baring Falls was St. Mary Falls until we saw a trail sign. Many people turn... More

Standing at the base of Virginia Falls is quite spectacular and worth the approx 2 mile hike in. The elevation change of around 500' was not too bad. What was bad was trying to find a parking spot at the St Mary trailhead even at 10am. As others have said keep going until you can go no further. You'll pass... More

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...
