Walk out to Sun Point for a view of St. Mary Lake and the surrounding mountains. For visitors who aren’t up to a long backcountry hike, Sun Point is a good place to stretch your legs without exhausting yourself and get a dramatic view of the scenery.
This was the site of the most elaborate of the Glacier’s chalets; it fell into disuse and was dismantled in the late 1940s once Going-to-the-Sun Road became the focus of trips to the park.
From Sun Point the trail skirts the lakeshore for less than a mile to Baring Falls.
