Description

Many trails to choose from in the park ranging from forested lake trails to the most popular mountain trail that takes you to the summit of Stone Mountain. The mountain trail traverses the exposed granite monolith starting in a thin pine forest and eventually gives way to a completely exposed and sometimes steep ascent. Bring plenty of water on hot days!
Trail length: 5 miles

    Even when the park is crowded you can feel like you are the only one hiking! A wonderful combination of people and aspects of solitude.

    You can go through the park, around the lower part of the mountain itself or straight up to the top (with some scenic side trails if desired) ! Wonderful but expensive to park cars without a year pass... A fantastic experience !

    It was a lot of fun hiking to the top of Stone Mountain. It can be used as a workout or you can take it a little easier. Either way, it will give you a great view at the top. The area is well maintained and parking was easy.

    This place is incredible! It is difficult to imagine a granite dome mountain on the outskirts of Atlanta, yet there it is. This is a great place to go with the family. The hike up the mountain is steep. The top of the mountain is dome shaped and you can wonder around most of it. There are only a few small trees near the top which makes for an unobstructed view of Atlanta and the surrounding area.

    Just outside of Atlanta, this is a great place to visit. They have a lot of touristy things to do here, like shopping, but my favorite thing to do is to hike up Stone Mountain. It is a pretty vertical climb to the top but you will be rewarded with an excellent view on top of an exposed granite mountain. They also have a laser light show in the summers which is pretty cool.

    The summit trail is just over 1 mile long but climbs about 700 feet! Great place to take the family, just know your limits. Some choose to take the tram to the top and hike down, a good option for those not in the best shape.
