Glacier National Park 7: St. Mary Falls

Glacier SM14-1046

St. Mary Falls is one of the signature waterfalls of Glacier National Park. It’s allegedly a three-fourths of a mile hike, with around 250 feet in elevation, but according to my GPS, the hike was a little over a mile. The GPS track looks like this:

As can be seen, there was quite a bit of fall color along the trail when I hiked it in the third week of September, 2014. The falls itself looks like this:
