Hike to St. Mary's Falls

3.2 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

A great workout with a waterfall at the end, and scenic views.

From the parking area, follow the trail as it heads up towards the falls. The last mile, in particular, makes for a decent uphill challenge. This hike and waterfall are great for showing family and friends.

Hard To Access

This trail is off of a 15 mi dirt road. It was accessible until about 2 mi away from trailhead, then because extremely rough road. 4x4 access only, if that. Very beautiful drive, but long and without a trail to hike since my SUV was not going to make the final 2 miles. Disappointed.
