Let's enjoy an early morning hike at Stone Mountain! We'll meet near the Historical & Environmental Center (formerly Confederate Hall), over by the restrooms next to Walkup Trail at 7:50 am. Our hike will first take us up the Walkup Trail to the top of the mountain. We'll enjoy fabulous views of Atlanta, northern Georgia and the surrounding areas. Next we'll head back down to the intersection of the Walkup Trail and the Cherokee Trail. We will hang left onto the Cherokee Trail and hike counterclockwise around the mountain. We'll pass through forests, by lakes and creeks, and possibly take a short detour onto Kings Island/Kings Trail.
We'll hike at a moderate pace of approximately 2.5 mph moving speed and stop two or three times for short breaks.
Recent D3 or greater hiking experiences is required to join the fun.
|How to Get There:|
Park in one of the parking lots near the Walkup Trail and meet in front of the restrooms near the train track by the Walkup Trail.
There is a $20 fee per vehicle to enter Stone Mountain; or you can purchase an annual pass for $40.
Please arrive at the walkup trail by 7:50 so that we can leave promply at 8 am.
