Directions:Along Going-to-the-Sun road, 0.3 miles west of Baring Creek. Baring Creek (Sunrift Gorge) is located 10.7 miles west of St. Mary (or 7.7 miles east of Logan Pass). Look for the trailhead on the side of the road.

Continue on the trail about 0.3 miles past St. Mary Falls, and you will find this unnamed and unmarked waterfall along Virginia Creek, which we have called Lower Virginia Falls. We mistook it for the actual Virginia Falls, but it is not. But it is still a very pretty cascade. You can scramble down the bank to get to the bottom of the waterfall and a different perspective.
