Visited by travelers from all over the world, Stone Mountain is one of THE best spots for sunset viewing in the city of Atlanta. It is a known fact that there are still a few AOC members who have never climbed Atlanta's biggest landmark. This is your chance to conquer the Mountain and get a prime viewing seat for the Wednesday evening sunset. 


We will be begin the hike at the confederate parking lot (near the restrooms) for an Easy to Moderate Hike to the top via an alternative route through the woods. We will spend some time at the top taking in the view and watching the sunset. There will be a  chance for some photos before we begin our descent via the main trail. This hike is suitable for beginners and those who wish to enjoy the great  views from the top of Stone Mountain.

As it will be getting dark towards the end of the hike, I recommend everyone bring a small headlamp or flashlight for the descent down.

The hike will be approximately 2.5 miles and will involve some steep sections so please bring appropriate footwear.

There is an $15 parking fee to enter the park; however, free public parking is available in Stone Mountain Village.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email Aaron or Mark.

Required Items to Bring:

Water or sports drink - at least one liter

Sturdy hike shoes with good tread

Small led flashlight or head lamp

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.


Snacks for sunset viewing
