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.

Hike to St. Mary's Falls Reviews

Moderate hike; did it in the snow-beautiful views of the canyon and the Cheyenne Mountains

Beautiful quiet hike, only meet a couple of people going up. Lots of beautiful views :) the waterfall was frozen so do be careful.

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.

This hike is pretty cool! Very easy and accessible for all ages.

Many different trails to hike. Dog friendly. Overall a wonderful hiking experience!
