Hiked on 7/1/2018. Wonderful hike from Sun Point all the way up to Virginia Falls. On the way backed, my 6 year old, my father, and I were chased off the trail by a momma grizzly and her cub near Baring Falls. It scared the little one a bit, but once we were safe, she couldn't stop talking about how cool it was to see a bear.

My husband and I did started thus waterfall at Sun Point Trailhead and continued on to do St. Mary Falls and Virgina Falls. In total, we did 7 miles. We started early and it was one of our favorite hikes. It's not as hard as some of the other hikes we've done this trip but it was one of the coolest. You see Virginia Falls from the road and, on this hike, you trek all the way up to it!

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.
