"This trail climbs on solid granite and through boulder fields to the top of Stone Mountain, some 780 feet above the surrounding Georgia Piedmont." Read more
"Rising nearly 800 feet above the piedmont hills and encompassing nearly 600 acres of exposed granite, 300-million-year-old Stone Mountain and the 3,200-acre park surrounding it have long been among Georgia’s premier tourist destinations. While the mountain may be best known for the massive carving of Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson, the park offers lakes and golf courses, excursion trains and aerial trams, a re-created antebellum plantation, and Crossroads living history village. The hike described here follows the Cherokee Trail, which encircles the mountain and intersects with the Walk-Up Trail to the summit (a National Historic Trail)." Read more
