A great and strenuous walk through several disparate ecosystems with various terrains and telling doing change in elevation. And also some use through the prism of 19th-century living that are still standing along the trails. Call this makes for at least a four star hiking trail just minutes from the bustle of Atlanta.
The trail was wooded and shaded for the most part. Went on 09/24/16 and encountered quite a few people along the way. Not as private and serene as I would of liked. To continue on the trail, many times you walk out of the woods to cross a street or end up at a tourist/ populated area such as a park, picnic area, windmill, etc. Had to pay $15 parking fee to enter Stone Mountain Park in order to hike this trail.

Short hike near city Atlanta. It took me 19 minute going up. It can be varied by individual and weather. Great view!
