Abruptly rising from the earth, Stone Mountain is certainly the highlight of the park, a park so large that it spans two counties. This magnificent state park also houses a little hidden gem known as Widow’s Creek Falls. A short, easy hike leads to this two-tiered waterfall. An inviting swimming hole at the base makes this one ideal for the entire family to splash about in the clear mountain water of Widow’s Creek.
