We missed these falls on the St Mary's fall hike so we decided to walk the less than half a mile from Sunrift Gorge to check it out. The trail was a bit overgrown but the wildflowers were gorgeous. There was a cute bridge over the water. We were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the falls were. Although not as pretty as St Mary or Virginia falls but it's worth a quick stop on a longer hike.

Great waterfall in Glacier National Park - you can walk up the left side of the wall for a great photo op. From Sunrift Gorge Parking area [.6 mi. RT, 30 minutes, 100’ elev gain] OR from St. Mary Cutoff / Virginia Falls Parking area [just west of Sunrift Gorge], you can reach Baring Falls. We started from St. Mary Cutoff trail due to bear activity in Sunrift Gorge - although we didn't see a bear, we should have realized being a short hike that we were still taking a risk, but safety in numbers, right? We took a right to St. Mary Falls first, then double-backed to Baring Falls across a neat log bridge [suspect it has been rebuilt since we were there]. Nice trails and great place to explore, highly recommend hiking to these falls.
