Quite the workout during the last 1/4 way up. Busy trail with lots of people, but trail is wide most of the way so you aren't likely to be stuck behind someone very long. Beautiful Vista views from the top.

Very difficult to follow trail markers and path was not well kept when I went in October.

Love this park. Love this trail.

Great workout ran up and ran slowly down felt great but crowded on the weekends. Beautiful had a great time with great people.

No dogs allowed on the mountain. We took the white trail all the way up without a single sign to indicate this and got yelled at the ranger at the top. Was an amazing trail but it was ruined by the rangers attitude especially when he said there are six signs on the yellow trail that we did not take. I don’t like breaking rules ever so it sucks when I did so unintentionally. I’ll go back without the pup but just be warned not to do as I did.

Great hike!

Gem of a local hike. Great cardio to views of Manchester and surrounding rural Hillsborough county.

Up/down makes for an awesome workout! Go early or late. Mix/match with the trails/gravel paths. I love challenging myself with the climbing. I’m up to 5 summits back to back in one visit! You can really make it as hard as you want it to be! When you get to the top- be sure to locate the geo marker!

Love my backyard park! Great for walking (pav d road or trails), biking, trail running. Trails pretty rooted/technical in some sections (esp white trail!). I never pay park fees- downtown Stone Mountain has plenty of free spots. Plan & Strategize-as some times /days pretty busy.

Only about an hour long, beautiful and can get steep! We went early so there were only a few people.

Nice easy trail. Not many people on a midweek day. We will be back.

Beautiful and different terrain than normal

Awesome setting for a short trail but extremely packed. Recommend finding some of the side trails tucked off on the sides to venture back down the mountain.

Short easy hike with some steep drop offs

Markers are few and far between on some trails but is easy to navigate because of the size.

Did Perimeter and Deer trails. Scenic views, good for school age kids. Well-maintained and marked paths.

Took my dog for his first hike here it’s a really nice trail not a huge amount of people when i went.

Very nice, quiet, easy hike with a reward of a great view at the top. We took the main trail up, and the Appreciation Way on the way back. There are the usual rocks and roots to watch out for, and the way can be slippery when damp.

Great loop around Stone Mountain. Not too heavily traveled on a Saturday morning. Last 3/4 mile is fairly steep and difficult.

easy hike with water views along most of the perimeter trail. My 11-year-old daughter loved the hike, especially the 2 bald eagles that we saw.

After the last few hikes I took, I was looking for something more scenic and less strenuous. This trail was perfect. Easy trail with some slippery rocks and a couple of steep staircases. It took about an hour and a half with stops for photos. The falls are beautiful and flowing due to the week of rain we had. The leaves are just starting to change. Beautiful views at the start of the trail and at the falls. I plan to go back in a week or so to check out the foliage progress. Only downside I found was the amount of people there. It's definitely a busy place. Some people there were loud and rather obnoxious. I'll try a different time of day next time!

Go to the South trail map on this app. That’s where you will find the views. There are a lot of trails on this side and it gets confusing.

Fast, easy hike with great views at the top of the trail. The waterfall is great on a hot day, and parts of the cliff that we had to duck under to pass were especially fun for the kids.

I was looking for a quick hike and was very pleased with this trail! It took us about an hour and a half to do the full loop- exactly what I was looking for! If you follow the Red Dot Trail, be ready for a really steep incline up to the top!

Nice woodland preserve, but the trail markings can be erratic. It's easy to wander down a clear path that tapers off to raggedy scrub. The blue trail markers in particular seem to be clustered so close together that it has two or three blazes on one tree, and three more on the next tree 12 feet away, and then five more blazes on the next five trees. Then, nothing....
So download the map before you head out, or follow the blue dot as you go, to make sure you don't end up climbing several extra ravine slopes in search of the path.
