Stone Mountain is a great way to spend the evening hiking with friends. The scope of the hike, and this AOC staple for years, is pretty simple. Get around and summit Stone Mountain as quickly as possible. To mix things up we may start with the summit or we may end with the summit. We may hike around the mountain clockwise or counter-clockwise to keep you guessing. Depending on the weather (rain, sunset, temperature, wind, etc) the summit may be ommited due for safety concerns and replaced with an extended hike around the mountain. Traditionally we hike around Stone Mountain on the Cherokee Trail which is well worn with moments of scrambling over rocks and plenty of tree roots to make things interesting. Based on trail conditions portions or all of the hike may be moved to the paved loop trail / road at Stone Mountain.
|How to Get There:|
From I-285 take U.S. Hwy 78 East (Snellville/Athens) exit.
Travel about 7 miles and take Exit 8, the Stone Mountain Park Main Entrance.
After entering the main entrance, proceed straight ahead. The road will fork at about 1 mile – stay to the right.
Continue to follow the road for another mile.
Confederate Hall will be on your left.
The parking lot will be immediately after. We’ll meet behind Confederate Hall near the walk up trail.
