Stone Mountain has seasoned and beautiful trail systems and it’s close to home. The views at the top and around the mountain are very pretty with variety of scenery. It’s a beautiful way to start a new year.

We’ll meet and start from the Confederate Hall parking area next to the bathroom building. We will go up, down, and around the Stone Mountain. We’ll go up the Walk-Up Trail to the summit of Stone Mountain and take a snack break. After enjoy our views at the top, we’ll come down to the base and go around the mountain using part of Cherokee Trail, part of Nature Trail, and part of side walk to complete the loop at the base of Stone Mountain.
