This is a fairly easy hike with a couple of great stops along the way. Parking can be difficult but there is a bus stop right at the trailhead.

This was AMAZING!!!!!! Almost stopped at the 1st waterfall - but keep going or you will miss the best part of the hike. Words cannot describe the majesty and power you experience. Definitely worth the hike!!!!! A must see.

I kind of expected a nice falls and St. Mary's was just that. But Virginia exceeded my expectations. Easy hike and tall beautiful drop that you can get right next to. You probably need to get here very early, like before 7:30 or 8am to...More
