I have completed the hike to the summit from the upper parking lot, both by itself and as the beginning of the full Stone Mountain Loop. The views on top of the massive granite dome are wonderful. There is a lot of room to explore the rocky terrain. It's not difficult at 3.5 miles round trip and a little over 500 feet of elevation gain. The switchbacks near the top will likely raise the heartbeat some, but the well maintained trail is very family-friendly. This is a rewarding hike that I expect to repeat again soon.
