Fairy Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The steep bluff landscape of the St. Croix River valley exudes a comfortably rugged beauty, with hills of dense forest and dales of grassy meadows. Drifting the river in a canoe or traveling the scenic highway reveals grand views of this well-preserved slice of Minnesota. Hidden beneath a canopy of woods, tucked in the folds of the bluffs, are magical secrets not visible from the surface.
Come, adventuresome spirits, and explore. One of these secrets lies in a deep gorge at the northern fringe of Stillwater. Silver Creek winds a relaxing route through quiet fields and forests upstream, flowing almost in slow motion over the brim of the gorge. Fairy Falls whispers enchanting tales in delicate tendrils, falling gently between vertical flanks of corrugated rock to a deep pool below."
