Stone Mountain Walk-Up Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This trail climbs on solid granite and through boulder fields to the top of Stone Mountain, some 780 feet above the surrounding Georgia Piedmont."

"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.

The hike described here follows the Cherokee Trail that encircles the mountain and intersects with the Walk-Up Trail to the summit (a National Historic Trail)."

"Rising 800 feet above the piedmont hills and encompassing nearly 600 acres of exposed granite, 300-million-year-old Stone Mountain and the surrounding park have long been among Georgia’s premier tourist destinations.

While the mountain may be best known for the bas-relief carving of Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson, the park offers lakes, golf courses, excursion trains, aerial tram, a re-created antebellum plantation, museums, and the 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)."

"The state’s most popular recreation destination, this park offers many enjoyable activities for children. Stone Mountain won first place in an Atlanta Journal-Constitution survey for best place for a day hike, for a picnic, and to take out-of-town visitors.

As the owners say, you can have “rock solid fun!” Special attractions: Stone Mountain, a skylift, swimming and boating, a steam-train ride, hiking, a nature trail, museums, a petting zoo, golf, and a laser show."
