St. Mary's & Virginia Falls, Glacier National Park

Since we like the Many Glacier Campground much better than St. Mary’s, we decided to use the Many Glacier area as our home-base and went to the St. Mary’s and Logan Pass area for the day. A short 2 miles one-way hike takes you past St. Mary’s Falls, which is very nice, onto Virginia Falls. But don’t be fooled by the unnamed waterfalls along the way – keep going – you’ll know Virginia Falls when you get to it. (Especially considering it has a sign!) It’s very tall and very nice, and has logs to walk around the falls – it feel somewhat like being in a tree house. It took us about 2 hours round-trip – it’s a very easy hike with little elevation change.

Speaking of St. Mary’s – big tip here - there is a small grocery store and gas station – avoid!! The grocery store (both years we’ve been there) barely has food, and the prices are outrageous. Same with the gas. Head to Browning instead.
