Here on business. Great trail for morning miles along the river. Nice rolling terrain.

Careful when it rains! It gets slippery. Go early or late for best views/light. The hike gets crowded on the weekends.

Nice hike, but the markings are a bit confusing. The granite gets quite slippery when damp.

Great trail. We hiked the largest outer loop. At times it got narrow and swampy down by the lake, but most of the trail was wide and well maintained.

Nice and well maintained trail. Staff and rangers are extremely friendly and helpful. Would strongly suggest to keep a map, available in visitor center. Ample amount of parking space.

Very busy on the weekends so get there early

Great hike. Beautiful.

Been walking this trail since I was a kid. The back end of the trail really needs some clean up from downed trees. But I would recommend this to anyone. It’s worth the 5$ parking :)

good for time

I'm not sure we got to experience the whole thing, due to some 'police line - do not cross' tape near the bridge. Nice walk otherwise.

Good workout! We took our 3yr old along (he spends a lot of time hiking) and he enjoyed it, too.

great hike with some good views

great hike and lots of civil war history

10.7 miles? Maybe around 16 according to mile marker signs

Trail was kinda rough and saw a large snake so was nervous for the rest of hike.

This trail has a good mix of ups and downs. Great for exercise

Great hike and what a view

Great hike. Not to hilly, just long enough to do the trick. Cant’t wait to come back!

Solid trail for a quick hike that’s not too far from Atlanta. Rolling hills and some narrow stretches to keep things interesting but nothing too crazy. Good for all ages.

Love this trail especially as a newer trail runner. Nice staff at the visitors center as well.

best time to climb Stone Mountain is either early in the morning or just before sunset. To see the sun rising or setting and the lights off Atlanta in the distance is awesome.

The part that we got to walk was beautiful. Construction stopped us very close to the beginning. It's very unclear where you are as the one map down the trail doesn't inform you exactly where you are. It would've been so lovely. 8/9/18.

Really enjoyed this trail. A number of nice elevation changes. Quite a bit of wildlife. Looking forward to running it again.

I go every Monday morning it’s a wonderful climb for all ages. The best time to go is around 8:00am that way you aren’t being hit My the suns powerful rays.

What a wonderful trail for a hike! This was my first time. Wonderful views and places to explore with water views, rocks to climb on, and bamboo area. Beautiful. It would have been tough to run if newer to trail running but great hike. Will definitely be back.

Awesome view at the end.
Very crowded and hot but much of it is shaded.

Pretty quiet. Good run. Steady mild ups or downs. Finished next to a nice small lake. Drinking fountain in parking lot. No restrooms. Good wildlife sounds.

Love this Trail. It is a little piece of heaven in the middle of suburbia!

I absolutely love this trail. There are plenty of different routes you can take - for those who prefer an easier walk, or something more challenging. It’s very scenic so there’s always something to look at. There is also a dog beach off to the left which is a lot of fun! It’s perfect when the water is low, but after it’s been raining, it’s a little too full to walk out anywhere. Just beware of the parking situation, as there is limited spots and it gets VERY busy on a nice weekend. (Also parking is $5 - cash only).
