We hiked St. Mary Falls on our first full day in the park. It was a nice easy hike for our first day. I recommend continuing on to Virginia Falls as overall both hikes together are fairly easy to do.

The hike there is easy/moderate. We saw some moose swimming in the lake on our hike. The falls was very impressive and worth the hike.

This is a fairly easy and short hike through beautiful Glacier Park. The waterfall is beautiful, close and great for selfies.

I can't illustrate how gorgeous the blue and green water is-- loads of bubbles, from the rock dust make it magical. A perfect waterfall experience.
