Hike to Stiles Falls Reviews

Nice trail , few water crossings if recent rain . Fun waterfall

Wear water shoes!

Beautiful hike through the woods and across the creek. Good for entire family.

I had such a great time on this hike and while it was pretty crowded I found that the people were nice and respectful. Altogether a great hike and very well maintained by the camp.

Great hike. The total distance from the parking lot (where there are bathrooms) is 3.4 miles

It was a nice spot to go to. I went in the month of 12/31/17 and thought it was a nice drive to get there as well. You’ll cross over 3 little creeks and get to the fall. It’s a short walk. Round trip 2 hrs or so. It’s on a campsite, so at this time of year it’s closed, so you can bring your dog.
