There is a very nice hike out to this falls and the falls themselves are very picturesque. it's also in the Lake St. Mary area.

This is a short, easy hike, perfect for the little ones. The waterfall is pretty--and the bridge is well protected to keep kids from falling. A bit steep from the road down, but then easy.

Of the 3 waterfalls on the Sun Point Trail (Baring, St Mary and Virginia), St Mary was my favorite. We tried to find parking at the small lot for St Mary Falls but could not find a spot. Therefore, we drove further to park at the large parking lot at Sun Point. We came on Monday, 8/31. I did, however, enjoy the initial trail at Sun Point where you get good views of St Mary Lake and you can see the trees burned by wildfire. The entire hike was 7 miles round trip and it took us 3.5 hours. If I had to do over, I would not have gone to Virginia Falls which added 1.6 miles round trip to our day and I was not too impressed.

It's hard to get a parking space at the trailhead, so we parked a little further up Going-to-the-Sun Rd and walked back. I was here 3 years ago but didn't remember the fire here in 2015. Well, that left us with no shade on this 2-mile return trip. It was a little steep at the trailhead but more manageable thereafter. The view of St Mary's Lake and the mountains are lovely! Not to mention the colorful foliage. The falls are not awesome but the mountains are.

Just a warning not to mistake Gunsight Pass for St Mary's trail, which seemed a bit common since there were several people on this trail that EVENTUALLY takes you to St Mary falls...if you want to hike 3.8 miles! Sharing this so others don’t make the same mistake. THIS trail is actually ALL DOWNHILL, very overgrown, and very narrow, as in only one-person wide. With very little shade. And a current daily update of “bear frequenting”. Finally, at 1.6 miles, you do hit some small waterfalls, which is where most people turned around. But going back was miserable, all uphill, sometimes pretty steep...make sure you have a walking stick. And while you see other people occasionally, it’s not enough to ease your concern of bears. The proem with this trail is that if you DO see a bear, there is literally nowhere to go! It is so overgrown that it’s literally impossible to leave the trail. You spray that bear, and now you just have an angry bear and no escape. So if you see a sign that says Gunsight, you need to drive further up the road to find the St Mary falls trail.
