We drove an hour to visit Stone Mountain to hike the Upper Loop trail. We had a great time hiking on a warm summer day on the shaded trails. We saw the water fall, the homestead, and the terrific views from the top of Stone Mountain. Well worth the drive and visit.

Having lived in NC all my life - this was my first time here - what an impressive site!! This is truly a beautiful park - and a great place to get a workout, if you're up to the 4.5 mile "Loop"!! Be forewarned, though - make sure you dress accordingly, as portions of the trail can be quite challenging... More

Very nice scenic roads, well maintained trails, clean bathrooms. Well worth the climb to the summit.

Great park for hiking! I was there on a Saturday afternoon, the weather was beautiful, yet the park did not feel crowded. Plenty of room for everyone! The trails are kept nice, and very clearly marked. Some parts of the loop trail are strenuous, so be aware of that if you bring small children, elderly or disabled people with you.

LOVE this place, planning a trip this coming weekend, August 8th and 9th. The view from the top is so beautiful and there is so much to do to entertain yourself, from waterfalls, rock slides, wildlife, to climbing a mountain.

A wonderful state park with well-maintained trails, great views and clean facilities. We started from the upper parking lot and opted to head directly to the Stone Mountain Summit hike with the additional spur to the Lower and Middle Falls. Heading directly to the summit, you encounter a steep ascent of about 1000 feet over one mile. Most of the... More

Visited in July, 2015. Wonderful park with exceptional views, but you do have to walk a bit. Planned another visit a couple of weeks later, and wanted to camp but all the sites were full. That pretty much says a lot. I visited the Visitor Center and everyone was very nice and helpful with information and advice. Very kid friendly.

This gorgeous park has everything . . Uphill trails that aren't too long, rock climbs, incredible views, historical farm, tumbling creeks, waterfalls you can wade in, woodland trails and a granite rock that REALLY rocks (can you say photo op??!!) if possible, split your party and have your photo taken from the base of the mountain when you're on the...

Great place to relax, fish and see wildlife. We have camped at the campground a number of times and will go back this Fall.

Although there are several hiking trails to take around in this park, we only went on the one with the Stone Mountain Falls at the beginning of it. There are several stairs, but it is so worth it to see the beautiful scenery and hear the water so close by. Majority of the trails are shaded with trees, so that... More
