First hike, St. Mary

Postby NWOhioJeff » Sat Aug 26, 2017 8:03 am

First hike in park, started at Red Eagle near the ranger station, hiked to St. Mary Trail, ending at St. Mary Falls. Long day hike. 17.5 miles total. Lots of overgrown areas on trail. Lots of bear scat, signs of bear on St. Mary trail but saw no bear. Some really good views of the Lake. Nice falls at end of hike. Saw only one other hiker the entire way until we got to the Falls.

I have never hiked the south side of St Mary Lake. Glad you were able to find a quiet trail with great views of the lake. As the Park gets more and more crowded, I will tuck the knowledge of these secluded areas into my back pocket. Thanks for sharing!
