  • My husband and I hiked to the Great Stone Door soon after we hiked the Greeter Falls trail. This one is also a beautiful spot. The trail is somewhat strenuous and has spots that can be dangerous if you're not careful. There are lots of cliffs and rocky crevices, so please watch your step. But it's lots of fun and exciting. The Stone Door itself is beautiful. It's steep and narrow, so be prepared to walk gingerly and if you walk down the steps it's a long way back up. So make sure your physically fit for it.
  • Incredibly beautiful hike, best at peak foliage in the fall!
  • Fantastic hike and rock feature! The Great Stone Door is a rock stairway that leads from the top of the hill lower into the gulch. It's so cool, you'll feel like you're in a Lord of the Rings movie. It's an easy hike (one mile) from the Stone Door Ranger Station. At the top is a lookout where you can see for miles. Be careful, though, there's no railing or anything else to prevent you from falling. Also a popular rock climbing spot. Fun for the whole family!
  • Great place to visit for the family
  • Good place to go on a nature walk must see the Indian post office when you're there not a good place to take small kids that you have to carry but are able to walk on their own good
