This trail is a real workout, it ascends with grades from 10 - 15% constantly. But the views from the top are well worth it, to say nothing of the good cardio workout you will get. On the way down do not miss the right turn!

Super short hike (about 1.3 miles each way) but very beautiful lookout at the top. Strenuous on the way up but doesn't last very long. The road up to the parking lot has lots of gravel so be careful!

Was going to start at the old CCC road trailhead, but there was a yellow barricade. So I started from the rocky ridge trailhead further up the road. Makes it a much shorter and easier hike. The field toward the end is really overgrown with tons of bees so be careful. Had to bushwack to get through. Views at the top are worth the struggle.

Once you get on trail from the parking lot, keep to the right at first fork, then go left on stone mountain trail. It is up hill, moderate to steep grade the entire way. Great workout, take plenty of water. Top was beautiful, probably better view once more of the leaves turn and after they fall off.
