Short, strenuous trail. Initial part (up the side of Stone Mountain) is rocky and steep. Marked with white blazes, but footpath is minimal. Trail on top of Stone Mountain to terminus at Rag Hollow Road is relatively level and easy to follow. This part is marked with red blazes.

Lower terminus starts at Bailey Gap Road just inside the state forest boundary. White blazes are used until the trail intersects the Stone Mountain Trail. After that red blazes are used. Without the blazes, the trail up the mountain side is difficult to follow. There is little in the way of a footpath. It is frequently rocky and steep. Once on the summit of Stone Mountain, the footpath is very evident. The trail continues to its upper terminus on Rag Hollow Road. The trail on the summit is relatively flat and easy going.
