Baring Falls is an impressive falls just up from the shore of Upper St. Mary Lake.  There are 2 main ways to get to the falls in Glacier National Park.  There's a short .3 miles hike down from the Going to the Sun Road at the Sunrift Gorge trailhead. 

The other route is a .1 mile walk from the primitive boat dock.  To take the second route, you'll have to take the boat tour on Upper St. Mary Lake.  The boat docks at the primitive dock for 20-30 minutes giving you plenty of time to walk to the falls.  If you take the right boat tour, you can also take a ranger guided hike and head past Baring falls to St. Mary's falls.  This hike is 1.5 miles one way with very little elevation gain.
