  • we feel these are a little overrated as the falls themselves are not very big. However the hike to get there makes it worth it if you do it like this - stop at Sunrift gorge parking area and walk towa...  more »
  • A fairly easy hike... eight of us... youngest 60, oldest 72. All photographers, all pleased with photo opportunities.  more »
  • We hiked St. Mary Falls on our first full day in the park. It was a nice easy hike for our first day. I recommend continuing on to Virginia Falls as overall both hikes together are fairly easy to do.  more »

  • Way too few parking spaces, signage on trail could do better. Nice walk through forest recovering from past fire. Falls are neat, though not spectacular. The Victoria falls further up need some distance info.
  • Great hike! Make sure to go the extra mile and do Virginia falls. It's definitely worth it! It's the waterfall you can see from the road. It's huge!
  • Nice easy hikes to a good waterfall. Go on to Virginia falls and you will be doubly delight.
  • Very powerful waterfall, highly reccomend doing this hike
  • Worth visiting!

Where to stay in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park offers a wealth of accommodation options right inside the park. You can stake a tent in one of theĀ campgrounds or choose from a handful of rustic lodges and chalets. Rooms fill up quickly at these, so make reservations as far in advance as possible (up to a year ahead). A few inns, motels, and lodges sit around the St. Mary's Lakes by the park's northeast boundary, but staying in Whitefish on the western side is a better choice if you prefer to be in a Montana mountain town. Here you'll find homey inns and lodges, economy motels, and a wide range of restaurants. You'll find additional inns and motels as you drive east along Route 2 toward the park's entrance.
