St. Mary and Virginia Falls Professional Review and Guide
"This trail is a short and pleasant stroll through sun-dappled forest to several roaring waterfalls in the valley below Goingto- the-Sun Road. From the trailhead, the trail descends to the valley floor, past well-marked trail junctions, to cross the river immediately below the thundering cataract of St. Mary Falls. Beyond the falls the forest opens up, affording views of Little Chief and Dusty Star Mountains. The path winds around the ends of several hillocks to reach Virginia Creek, which it follows for 0.5 mile past a narrow gorge. The hike ends at equally impressive Virginia Falls, which emerges from the mouth of a hanging valley. A short spur on the right leads you to the foot of the falls."
