The trail from Stone Mountain is far from moderate, I would rate it 7.8 on a scale of 1-10, 10 being strenuous. the view is gorgeous but it's disappointing to reach the overlook and have people drive up in their cars. The trail is also, more like 13 miles, not 10 and took around 7 hours to complete at a moderate pace, the loop was closed, it's in and back out. If you just like hiking in the woods to be hiking and need a really good workout, this is a great trail for you. Don't get me wrong, there are some nice views along the way but they're few and far between.
