A great way to spend an evening hiking the Cherokee Trail and then climb to the summit of Stone Mountain.
We will meet near the start of the walk-up trail behind the large parking lot beside Confederate Hall. The hike will start promptly at 6:30 pm so plan to arrive early. There is an $10 parking fee to enter the park; however, free public parking is available in Stone Mountain Village. See directions below.
The scenic hike takes us past two lakes, an old time gristmill, an historic covered bridge, an outdoor quarry exhibit, and offers great views of the mountain. At times we will hike on exposed granite and at other times we will hike along wooded trails. We will maintain a fast pace.
|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. Confederate Hall will be on your left. The parking lot will be immediately after. We’ll meet behind Confederate Hall near the walk up trail.
I will email all event participants about the status of the hike in case there is a chance of severe weather.
