East Glacier Park Village, Montana Map

The trail is 95% walking through vegetation, sometimes very tall and growing into the path. There are a few good views of the mountain and river along the way. The vegetation only gets more overgrown as the trail nears the falls. The falls at the very end is very nice and beautiful, but I wouldn’t recommend the trail because the rest of the hike is simply not that interesting.

This is a short, beautiful trail! We took it July 8. The wildflowers were amazing, the skies clear! We felt like we were walking to Shangri-la along the side of the mountain below breathtaking peaks. We took the 10:00am boat and did the hike to Upper Two Medicine Lake. 4.4 miles round trip. We were able to take the return 1:15 boat.

Exceptionally crowded, average waterfall.

Short, easy trail with beautiful waterfalls. Make sure to hike all the way to Virginia Falls.

Easy trail with an up hill climb and up close waterfall encounter at the end. Most of the trail is good for all ages, rocks by waterfall are slippery and not good for children.

We did the full hike today and it was everything the descriptions say - absolutely beautiful and challenging. Took us about 6.5 hours. There is still a bit of snow on the back side so bring poles, but it is passable if you take your time. However, we did run into a bear right on the trail. No exaggerating, he was 15 feet off the trail and we didn't see him until we were right there. I cannot reiterate enough to be prepared with bear spray and make sure you are in groups talking loudly. We were fortunate he was scared and after a couple minutes ran away.

bring lots of water since there's no stream to fill your bottles. otherwise totally worth the climb!

difficult to pay for diversity

7/4/19: This is the best way to see all the falls, starting at Sun Point picnic area....it adds miles to your hike but it worth it. Very heavy traffic to Baring Falls which is where most people stoped at. Some continued on to St. Mary and Virginia Falls. The weather was perfect for hiking til the end when showers moved in but we had the falls to our selves (bonus)!! Total hiked was 8.6 miles round trip because we went a little bit out on the St Mary Lake trail too.

We hiked 8 trails while at GNP, and this was my favorite for beautiful and varied scenery.

This is my third visit to Glacier National Park, and this hike is my favorite. We visited two years ago in early June and there was too much snow to do this hike. Just did this yesterday, 5 July, and the trail was clear (one ~50m length of snow to walk across). We went from the Two Medicine Lake Campground up the Pitamakan side and down the Dawson side, back to the campground. GPS said the loop was 19.3 miles. The first five or six miles up the Pitamakan side are pretty easy, doesn’t start to get steep until you hit the switchbacks. Going down Dawson was a steep downhill most of the way, but beautiful views to distract you!

Loved this hike! I started at Sunrift Gorge, total distance 5.7miles. Both falls were pretty and the hike was easy. A couple deer shared the trail with the hikers and I saw a moose in the distance. Lots of people on this trail in late June even with the cooler temps and rain. Def recommend!

I cannot get over how blue the water is a St Mary!! So gorgeous. Virginia Falls was equally gorgeous. Lots of people.

Very nice trail. Not too challenging. If it’s been raining it’ll be muddy, and there’ll be some mosquitos around. Be ready for any weather. Kid friendly. Make it up to Virginia Falls, it’ll be worth it.

Added this portion on to our St Mary /Virginia Falls trip since we were in the parking lot.... overall a good little hike... mosquitoes came out but it was 7pm. ❤️

We started at Sun Point picnic area for parking. The trail was busy due to the holiday (Fourth of July), most of the crowd stopped at Barrin Falls. Those who continued on were spaced out enough to enjoy the trail. We had a doe come out and walk the trail with us for a little while! The St Marys fall is beautiful but keep going to the Virginia Falls, well worth the extra 0.8 mile. While we were there it started to rain, which cleared out a lot of the hikers leaving the fall to us alone. On the way back , it stopped raining and the sun came out, we had a buck just off the trail and a little further on we had another doe pose for photo ops!!! A good day for hiking!!!!❤️

What trail isn’t beautiful at glacier??? Huckleberries as far as the eyes could see!!!

recommend because of view. great trail

Loved this hike. Lots of sheep!!!! Amazing view at the end but holy crap was it windy. Had to climb up and around a short section of snow.

Find parking early or late. The most beautiful spot is at the top of the falls - don’t stop too soon. Bring bug spray if you want to stop for lunch or a snack on the trail.

Rainy and mostly cloudy day, much of trail is muddy but views at the top are spectacular. Long stretches of being exposed between pita and two medicine, but saw two moose on Dawson side.

Went in November and got caught in the strongest wind we’ve experienced but the hike itself was moderate along with a good amount of snow near the top!

The trail was very steep, but the views from the top of Siyeh pass were amazing! I had to turn around because of a snow bridge that looked dangerous.

7/1/19 - It’s difficult to contribute much to the existing conversation here. This looped proved to be the capstone of our Glacier hiking. We opted for the counterclockwise route, but could make just as much of an argument for the reverse. Either way, if you have the fitness, take the hike. The views after the climb (from either direction) are equalled by few others. The hike has it all mystical forest paths, deep valley sweeps, lakes, falls and endless peak views. It GPS’d at 18.4 miles with cumulative elevation gain of +4500. Take lunch and enjoy it at Pitamakan Pass (it was MUCH less windy than Dawson’s).
