Stone Mountain State Park will leave you in awe! The 600-foot-tall granite dome is the highlight, but the park is also home to fabulous waterfalls, meadows filled with wildflowers, a campground, fishing, picnicking, and over 18.0 miles of trails for hiking and horseback. The loop trail follows a delightfully active creek leading to the spectacular Stone Mountain Falls. You’ll then hike past the brink and up to the summit of Stone Mountain. The breathtaking views from here are unmatched.
