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

Absolutely worth the 3 mile hike. A few up hill battles but nothing a little time and effort can't accomplish.

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
