Pack your hiking poles! Steep up and down. Not very well marked. Very easy to get off the path. Was too snowy the end of September to get to the very top but the view of Blairmore was beautiful

beautiful mountain and lake side views along with three different water falls. only downside is personal, in that I prefer alpine trails :)

Great hike to a good-as-it-gets alpine lake. Amazing fall color when we went. We did the south trail first and looped back on the north. There was construction at the beginning of the south trail when were there (which is more of a road at the start). Construction aside, the north is more rustic and offers better views. If you pick one, go with that one.

hard hike and very steep in places. you have to watch for some markings on way down near lower half or you get into extreme steep decline. i recommend using a hiking stick especially for decline. allow between 4 to 5 hrs for return hike.

What an amazing hike. Cool weather but was worth it. Did go all the way to summit.

Hiked 9/5/18 from shuttle stop. Apparently there's a new trail, because this is a shorter route than going from the car parking. It goes through a nice clearing with mountain views, but does not go by St Mary Lake. An easy, pleasant walk with both mountain and waterfall views. Be sure to look east (away from St Mary Falls) for nice views.

Great Hike! Not an easy one. My dog and I took about an hour and half to get up. Would recommend for anyone looking for beautiful views and a bit of a challenge.

Trail is pretty easy to follow.

Truly a capstone event if visiting the park. The last waterfall is an incredible walk-up 60 foot fall. On the trail, we also saw 2 moose.

Incredibly well-maintained trail with a fast ascent and epic views! Perfect for a mid-morning hike. About two hours to the summit, worth heading to the true summit to the east to get the view of the plateau. Be sure to bring a shell jacket - the winds are fierce up top.

Such a great trail. Not to challenging. Definitely worth it

All incline but most importantly my dog (GSD) could do it alongside me, and there were a lot of other dogs using the trail too

A really nice hike, good incline. The trail is fairly easy to follow, it's marked pretty well. The hike only takes a few hours but the view is absolutley worth it!

We went later in the day, so there were not too many crowds. Easy hike, with a gradual climb.

Very nice hike. Only problem was to find a trailhead. We got lost but thanx to recording on this app we realized it 1 hour into wrong way. We had 2 dogs with us. Went to South Haig Lake trail. Steady claim uphill and you need to be prepared for wild life. We were pleasantly surprised how small Haig Lake actually and how beautiful everything looked. On the way back we found some bear droppings that werent there before and also small droppings looked like fox or coyote.

Great hike, we did this with 2 dogs no problems. We took the south trail first. First bit of the trail was up a service road, then the trail started near the chairlift. The trail head was hard to find at the top as it is behind some electrical building with a loud fan. Once on the trail everything was marked fine. The lake and hike was lots if fun. We took the North trail on the way back. it was hard to find the trail head but once on it was a very noticeable trail, just follow all the "cinch traverse" signs and you will be fine. Overall a great hike even with all the smoke.

lovely area, Victoria falls is beaut. unfortunately, Glacier is on fire and access is restricted right now, so be aware if u r reading this in the next couple of weeks

Great short hike. Challenging and steal near the summit, but completely worth it. VIEWS VIEWS VIEWS!

This hike was awesome! First half is super easy and then once you get to the scrambling it gets a little tougher. Couldn’t make it up the chain due to the wind but will definitely be coming back another day to try!

great challenging hike with beautiful views all the way up. step in sections with some scrambling (very little). very well maintained trail that is marked all the way up. great view at the top and well worth the effort to get there. One of my new favorite.

This is a fun and fairly easy trail. Goes through a burn area that has now been taken over by the flowers. You still get great views of the mountains as you work your way through the woods. Keep going all the way to Virginia Falls, it is worth it! There are also several “mini-falls” between St Mary and Virginia that keep the light uphill portion entertaining. Limited parking- either take the shuttle, get there early, or be prepared to be patient for a spot.

Did this trail with my kids. Was challenging for sure. Starts off steep and finishes steep as well. Worth the view though

Would be great to start earlier and summit the peak behind the crash. Following the theme, we took the completely wrong trail on our first attempt! But very cool piece of history to see!

Did this hike Aug 2017. Growing up in the area, it was amazing to see the slide from this vantage. Be prepared for straight up! And good luck finding the trailhead!!

Beautiful, a bit of a steep climb which can be slippery coming down for a less experienced hiker.

Trailhead could be better marked and the trail through the scree could be better marked as well. Otherwise an exceptional CHALLENGING hike with great nature views.

Great trail that isn’t too long or too taxing. But it’s definitely longer than listed. Be prepared for about 4 miles there and back if you want to see Virginia Falls from the furthest viewing location. Lots of deer were on the trail, very tame.

Awesome hike with views all the way up. Though sometimes difficult to find the trail at times, due to lack of markers, there are many rock stacks along the trail which helped us find our way. Also saw two large mountain goats. Would do this trail again.

not a bad hike, don't expect many switch backs. the trail is fairly steep. good hike to the top. the hike down is worth having a set of hiking poles and good footwear.

the scramble to the second summit is a challenge. do it with caution. we made it half way, I'd say it's a good 2-3 hr addition to your hike.

Spectacular! Was there about a week ago. Many hikers jumping off of the bridge below St. Mary Falls. Hike it to the end for the Virginia waterfall. It’s worth it.

Very pretty. Nice and easy. Lots of people though!
