Know Before You Go As you may have already guessed, the Three Falls Hike includes three of Glacier National Parks’ most famous waterfalls, as well as several other unnamed waterfalls.

Three Falls Hike Options Depending on when you visit, there are plenty of options for shortening this hike by using the shuttle service that runs through the park.

For example, you could park at Sun Point, hike to Virginia Falls and then out to the St Mary Falls shuttle stop to hitch a ride back to your car.

Regardless, if you plan to see all three of the waterfalls, you should give yourself at least 3 hours to complete the hike. This leaves time for photo taking, water/snack breaks and rests if needed.
