I have been hiking around Stone Church for decades. In recent years, local enthusiasts have improved the maintenance and site access. A leisurely stroll along a naturally defined path that eases the transition from field to streamside meander requires no special equipment although I recommend...More

This is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. Although in the winter the hiking is a bit more difficult as it was icy the day we went. Enjoy the hiking trails along with the waterfall.

The hike to the stone church is not too far nor difficult. The signage is good until you get to the point where several trails diverge. To get to the stone church you stay to the right and walk on a stone path along side...More

Nice walk to take for the young and the old. The cave is beautiful and easy to get to, and there are more challenging trails as well.

Not that we ever saw. It is wet inside and you have to skip across rocks to avoid falling in the water. People walk their dogs there a lot. That's the only type of animal I've seen in or around the cave. That and... More
