Let’s hike Stone Mountain! We will meet at restrooms near Historical & Environmental Center (formerly Confederate Hall). Our journey will include the walk up trail, connector trails, Cherokee trail, King's trail, ... and my favorite the Songbird trail. As an added bonus we will do the convention center trails, which is the Evergreen part of the park. Beautiful scenery and lakes are on our hike. We will maintain a fast pace with a few short breaks along the way so this is not a hike for stopping to take pictures. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for socializing and introductions for on time departure. Bring an on-the-go snack if desired. We will take a break at one of the picnic tables near the King's trail.
Recent D3+ experience to join the fun. Not for beginners.
|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. The annual pass is $40
and well worth it if you come here
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.
