Nice easy walk up

Fun and unique trails. Well maintained park and beautiful views all along the way! Some of the trails can get a little busy, so just be prepared for that, especially towards the top of Stone Mountain.
Still well worth it!

It was silent, peaceful winter trail.
The weather was little cold but rock climbing is make me sweaty.
And rest of the course was nice, easy.

easy hike for beginners. I would start at the trailhead off of the right side of the start of the hike up trail- that side has the most elevation gain and is pretty difficult when you are tired out from the rest of the hike

Beautiful views on the way up and from the top!

It is very challenging but I felt like Jesus wanted to meet me here so I did even if I was scared that the stone is slippery because it was pouring on my drive to the location. Anyway I just kept hiking up like a penguin by using the outer edge of my foot to support each step. I didn’t slip and the rain cloud started to be swept away and I got a chance to see the sun while it was slowly setting. You have almost a 360 view at the very top. Coming down a solid white line is steeper, it needs more faith, trust and persistence. The breaking yellow line would still be slippery if it rained so still be careful.

This was our first trail hiked!!! Awesome, memorable experience. Gorgeous views the whole hike up. The trail got pretty steep towards the end but not too difficult. My 9 and 7 year old did this hike very easily. Would definitely recommend for family vacationing.

Nice addition when doing Cherokee Loop Trail.

A well spent day. Added a couple of side loops (intentionally). Weather was cold and drizzling but trail was in good condition.

Great way to start the day, made it up in time to watch the sunrise.

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.

This is a great trail every time. Crowded, but beautiful and a good workout.

Georgia state. Cherokee Trail very nice, beautiful trail. i never go to Hiking. My first time in to hiking very nice, peaceful. Then finishing My Trail point. I will ne there next time on trail. I got late at 6 pm. Dark. Will be strong. Next time.

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!

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.

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.

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

It’s a awesome place to get a quick hike in after work! Just a brief up and down. People can do t on their own since there are lots of other hikers! Fast way to get elevation near Atlanta. It could also be a good trail run! Not as scenic but easy and accessible:)
Pro tip: don’t go on a weekend because it’s CROWDED!

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