|From the parking lot we will walk 0.7 miles to Confederate Hall inside the park. From there we will climb Stone Mountain and descend to Cherokee trail, a total of about 2 miles. We will walk the Cherokee trail counterclockwise. After approximately 4 miles on the Cherokee trail we will stop for a picnic lunch in the Crossroads area at about 1:00, and then walk 2 miles back to our cars.|
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||Stone Mountain, GA at the public (and free) parking area at the intersection of Main St. and Second St. in Stone Mountain Village. Proceed on Druid Hills to US 78 East (Stone Mountain Freeway). Continue east on US 78. Merge onto GA 10 W/ Stone Mountain via Exit 5. Proceed 0.5 miles on GA 10 to the first exit. At the end of the ramp turn left. Drive a mile or so, past a gas station and a funeral parlor (both on your right). The parking lot will be on your left, about 0.1 miles past City Hall (which will be on your right).|
If you are not sure whether you can find the Stone Mountain
parking lot on your own just let me know, and I will meet you at
8:30 am at Caribou Coffee at the intersection of La Vista and
Druid Hills, across from the Toco Hills shopping center. There is
probably no need to carpool, since the starting point of our hike
is only 11 miles away. To get to this location, if you are driving
south on I-85 take Exit 89/Druid Hills. At the top of the ramp
turn left and proceed approximately 1.9 miles. Caribou Coffee
will be on your left.
