  • Easy trail that is not very long. We saw deer and eagles along the way. The falls are beautiful as well as the surrounding area.  more »
  • An easy, short hike to some nice waterfalls. Good for all family members. Downhill to the falls, uphill back. Great place for pictures.  more »
  • The trail leading to the falls is full of wildflowers, including bear grass, in June. The water is so brilliant when you arrive at the falls, that it just doesn't seem real, but the glacier flour that...  more »

  • This was a very easy beautiful trail to hike, make sure you tar it to the end to see the Virginia Falls it adds at most an extra 2 miles, but it's worth it. It was very crowded, but that is to but expected with a shorter easy trail. St Mary Falls were very beautiful and it was very open and there were many places too sit and relax. Jumping in the water was by far the best part of the trail, there are several places to jump in from, but be warned the water is freezing.
  • Alleluia! Legend has it that Saint Mary appeared on the mountainside on a snowy day. I must not have a very good imagination but this waterfall doesn't need any. A quick hike from the parking lot about a mile or so. I heard the parking lot can fill up on a nice day, but I went when it was raining and nobody was there! Just the way I like it!
  • St. Mary Falls is a very nice, easy little hike but with very little parking. Make sure you get here extremely early or ride the shuttle because it does get very very busy. The hike is about 1.7 miles round-trip, but I highly recommend continuing on and doing the Virginia Falls hike as well. That would make it about 3.6 miles round trip. This fall drops about 35 feet, the Virginia Falls is a good 50 feet, both are well worth the stop.
  • Stunning views of the fall. About a 1.25 mile hike down to it but we'll worth the effort.
  • It's beautiful, keep going up the cedar trail to find Virginia falls again it's worth the trip.
