Come join me for a weekday Stone Mountain hike. My objective is to get in a midweek elevation/hill work out.
We will hike up Stone Mountain and then back down to the pavilion. The twist: we will turn around at the pavilion and hike back up to the top hopefully to catch the sunset.
The hike is about 3.0-miles and under 1000 feet of elevation gain. The event duration is around an hour forty-five minutes. Everyone can go at their own pace, truth be told, I'm usually the last one up:)
We will take 5 to 7 minutes to do simple upper body exercises at the pavilion on the last down; table pushups and bench dips. (optional)
Please bring a flashlight or head lamp for the trek down. Sun sets at 8:34 PM.
|How to Get There:|
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 $20 for the daily parking fee if you don't display a valid annual pass.
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).
You can also enter through the West Gate entrance, in Stone Mountain Village. If you enter here, turn right through the gate and you're almost to the Confederate Hall parking lot on your left.
OPTIONAL FREE PARK ENTRANCE FOR PEDESTRIANS & BICYCLISTS:
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
