For those who are not really cooking or plan a late Thanksgiving meal, join me on a hike around Stone Mountain! We will take Cherokee Trail, a nice wooded trail with plenty of lake views. We'll hike approximately 5 miles keeping a moderate to fast pace with few rest stops. 

The meeting point is outside the restrooms at the Confederate Hall. 

There is a $15 parking fee to enter the park, or you can buy the annual parking pass. However, free public parking is available in Stone Mountain Village. See directions below. If you park outside, be at least 15 minutes earlier to make the walk into the park. 

(Thank you Tony C. for the picture!)
