WHAT: Come enjoy the Mountain in all its late Fall
glory, especially with the maples and chestnuts turning colors. The plan is
to set a moderate pace as we hike the Cherokee Trail which circles the
mountain. Along the way, we encounter an assortment of lakes, a cosmetic
gristmill, a historic covered bridge, a vintage single-wide trailer, and of
course great views of the mountain. Although most of the hike is along
wooded trails, we do walk over several patches of exposed granite which
can be fun and dangerous at the same time. Please make sure you wear appropriate footwear with good
traction so that you can tackle the (sometimes) slick granite. The
moderate pace is designed to keep the group together and allow for plenty
of photo ops so bring your camera. At the end of the Cherokee loop, there
is the option to scramble up to the top of the mountain, or head to the
parking lot. Your choice!
|How to Get There:|
DIRECTIONS: To the main entrance- From I-285
take U.S. Hwy 78 East (Snellville/Athens) exit. Travel about 7 miles and
take Exit 8, the Stone Mountain Park Main Entrance. After entering the
main entrance, proceed straight ahead. The road will fork at about 1 mile
stay to the right. Continue to follow the road for another mile to the
Confederate Hall parking lot which will be on your left. Well meet in front of
the Whistle Stop Station restroom area, which is just beyond the parking
If for any reason you cannot make it on the day of the hike, please text or email us. Also, in case of severe weather, I will email all event participants no later than 7 AM on the morning of the event. Please check your email at that time to ensure that we are still on schedule for the day!
