“A very easy hike!”

This is about 6 miles round-trip but is a very easy hike. Very nice to do and only takes about 2 hours (or 3 hours with many picture-taking breaks)!

There's no reason to stop going at St. Mary Falls, unless you're short on time. The difficulty is about the same with double the distance to go to Virginia Falls, and they are much more stunning.

There were many beautiful waterfalls along the trail between St Mary Falls and up to Virginia Falls, so a very scenic hike up to the top. It gets a bit steeper near the end, but is definitely worth the time. Water bottles and hiking poles make for a nicer walk.

It helped me a ton when other people advised me to keep going after St. Mary's falls- even though there are other falls- I wasn't sure. But I kept going. You will KNOW when you get here. There are 2 viewing areas- the higher one gets you up close and personal to the falls such that you can feel the mist. The one a bit lower is good for viewing or photos if you don't want mist on your lens from above. Nice falls!

I'm glad that I hiked the extra distance to visit Virginia Falls from the St. Mary Falls. I found the Virginia Falls to be far more scenic. The Virginia Falls offer far more composition options for photography than the more popular St. Mary Falls as well.
