“Worth the hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

For the most part, this is an easy hike that is well worth it for the reward of the St Mary Falls. There is nothing technical about the hike and it is a well worn path. My 4 1/2 year old daughter was able to make the trip to and back with only minimal complaints.
If you're looking for solitude, you will not find it on this hike. This is a very popular hike and, as such, both the parking and the trail fill early in the day.

“Nice Hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The hike to St. Mary Falls was quite enjoyable. We were traveling with friends and our 11 yr old grandson. The paved path was easy to follow, not too strenuous but did get your heart to pumping. The falls were well worth the hike and the foliage along the way was beautiful. So, glad well took the time to make the trek.

“The Power of Water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I roped my husband into this hike off the fabulous Going to the Sun Road. I know many of the reviews say it's an easy hike, but I have to say these getting older bones protest on the downhill walks, but I am so glad we did it! Sheets of water power over the ancient rocks creating a thunderous sound. I could have stayed there for hours just watching the water make it's way through the rocks. On the way back we stopped a few times to catch our breath.....looks like we need to do this more often

“Short hike to good water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Great little hike for a hot summer day. Make sure you go all the way to the top. Water may be cold but is refreshing.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is an easy walk mostly downhill from the trail head on the road. Well worth the effort for a pleasant place have a snack or lunch in the shade and spray from the falls.
