Stonewall Falls photographed by Greg Heil
Leader: Marie Dunkle
Outing Description: This will be about a 6-mile moderate hike with variety terrain. It includes several water crossings where you will need to get through water above boot level, so be prepared with extra shoes for the crossing. Stonewall Falls is a beautiful setting in a National Forest. The trail is designated for mountain biking, but there are few bikes, and it's great for hikers. We will explore, stop and eat lunch along the way, and the hike should last about 4 hours. This is a dog-friendly hike.
