St Mary Falls but keep going to See Virginia Falls too

We rode the free shuttle in the park to Logan's Pass and switched to a bus that took us East with a stop at St Mary Falls. We were lucky enough to have people on the bus that had... read more

We rode the free shuttle in the park to Logan's Pass and switched to a bus that took us East with a stop at St Mary Falls. We were lucky enough to have people on the bus that had hiked it the day before and they told us to keep going just a bit more and then we would get... More

This was a nice morning hike. You can stop at St. Mary Falls and turn around, or continue to Virginia Falls which we did.

We took a boat ride that included an optional three mile, round trip, hike to the falls. A park ranger led the hike, stopping to discuss the flora and fauna of the region, as well as the impact of wildfire. The journey to the falls was well worth the effort. The waters are a beautiful turquoise, which was an unexpected... More

We did this hike on a whim when we were driving the Going to the Sun Road. It took a little while to find parking since it's a popular spot give the ease and location of the hike. There and back is approximately 3 miles. You can continue on to Virginia Falls if you wish and extend your hike. Beautiful... More

While the Going-to-the-Sun road was closed after the twelfth mile in May, we were still able to hike this gorgeous trail to the St. Mary falls and Virginia Falls. The scars from the fire at the beginning of the trail are a sharp contrast to the lush evergreens by the falls. It certainly gives you a great appreciation for the... More

We did this hike with not enough water / snacks and carrying quite a bit of camera gear to capture the falls. It was a very warm day and we peeled off whatever clothes was decently possible. The falls were definitely worth the trek - we were the ones not prepared. On the way back, took a shortcut to the... More

It is a bit of a hike to St. Mary's falls, but not difficult and worth the trip. Unfortunately there was a fire in this section of the park in 2015 and the results are quite apparent, but the green undergrowth has already started. Upon getting closer to the falls one can see the falls at a distance and the... More

We had a great hike to the falls from the parking area. Due to the fire last year, you can really see a lot of the mountain as you hike down to the falls. the kids loved it - perfect distance!

We wanted to hike and thought this was perfect. Not easy but not hard. The falls are beautiful and worth your time. But wait, there's more. Keep going, a little harder and further to Virginia Falls. PUSH ON!
