Nice walk in the woods to the falls. These are smaller and more of a rushing rapids than long straight down water falls. Still, beautiful. You can feel the ground shake standing... read more

Nice walk in the woods to the falls. These are smaller and more of a rushing rapids than long straight down water falls. Still, beautiful. You can feel the ground shake standing near them. Photo is of a stream on the trail.

Because we knew that there were only 16 parking spots at the "lot" for St. Mary's Falls, we parked at Sunrift Gorge. This added a bit to the hike to St. Mary's and Virginia Falls, but we also got to see the Gorge and Dering Falls. Along the way, we saw moose down in the water.

Only problem is finding a place to park. If you are lucky, once you park your car, plan on taking in both St. Mary Falls and then continue on past to Virginia Falls. It is not that much further, and besides, what else do you have to do? Both are well worth seeing and make good pictures. You do NOT... More

The hike to St. Mary's Falls is a farely short easy hike with some elevation gain. We hiked to St. Mary's Falls, then on to Virginia Falls. If you have time I highly recommend continuing on the trail. Both are beautiful falls. There are numerous waterfalls between the two. We thought we had reached Virginia Falls when we came upon...

If you like waterfalls, you really must continue on the trail to Virginia Falls. It took us about 2 hours (not rushing) to hike to St. Mary and Virginia Falls. Virginia Falls is much more impressive than St. Mary's.

The hike to the falls is easy and beautiful. The falls were crystal clear and running fast on our trip. There is so much to see and do in the park and this is on to put on your list for a short beautiful hike.

After taking the fairly easy hike to St. Mary's Falls, we were rewarded with a beautiful view of the falls. I was amazed at the amount of water coming down. My husband and I were able to take some nice pictures of the falls. This was worth the hike in the rain.

We didn't let a little wind and rain deter us for long. When the rain let up a bit, we started our trek. Soon there were many others on the trail. The falls was flowing pretty good and was a very scenic view.

A short hike from the parking which is just off the Going to the Sun Road. Continue on to see Virginia Falls.

This is an update to my earlier review. We didn't actually hike to St Mary/Virginia Falls this time as the hour was late and the scenery has been incredibly altered since the fire of 2015. I am sure it's still a gorgeous walk with a huge change in surroundings and maybe a bit of danger too, from potentially falling trees.... More
