Come out on a nice weather evening for sunset. Would be a nice event for beginners to become familiar with the club. We will meet in front of Confederate Hall near the restroom building at 6:15pm and hike up Stone Mountain.  Sunset is at 7:22. After introductions we'll begin our ascent.  When the sun disappears below the horizon we will head down the mountain.  Remember a flashlight or headlamp since it will be dark..

How to Get There:
Event Directions:
  • From I-285 to the Park's "East Gate" entrance:

    From the I-285/ US-78 interchange on the east side of town take U.S. Hwy 78 East about 7.7 miles.  Bear right at Exit #8 to the Stone Mountain Park "East Gate" main entrance where you'll pay $10 for the daily parking fee if you don't display an valid annual pass.  Suggestion:  Esp. if you're new to the Park ask the gate attendant for a free color map.

  • Once inside Park, drive to Confederate Hall parking lot:

    After entering via the East Gate, first follow Jefferson Davis Drive about a mile straight ahead to the big road fork, crossing the lake en route. Bear right onto Robert E. Lee Blvd and follow it about another mile, bearing left to avoid the West Gate exit.  Look for the spacious Confederate Hall parking lot on your left where we park during the hike.  We'll gather at our "usual AOC meetup spot," by the stone restroom building at the base of the Walk-Up Trail (about 100 yards toward the mountain from Confederate Hall).

* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:   Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
