WHAT: Come enjoy the Mountain in all its Winter glory. The plan is to set a moderate pace on the Cherokee Trail which encircles 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:|
Enter "Stone Mountain Park, Confederate Hall Parking Lot" in your favorite nav app and follow directions to the parking lot. Meet near the short wall outside the restrooms.
OLD SCHOOL DIRECTIONS: 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. We’ll meet in front of the Whistle Stop Station restroom area, which is just beyond the parking lot.
If for any reason you cannot make it on the day of the hike, please text me (or Chris). 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!
