Stone Mountain has all types of terrain for walking, hiking and even climbing. The creek is just beautiful, and it parallels trails, and you even get to cross the creek in places. Highly recommend for solos, families, kids and pets

I have lost count of how many times I have completed the loop trail. I grew up in Wilkes County an went to the park as often as possible. I plan on taking my daughter for her first visit this spring. While the trails are clearly marked, there is an urge to go off trail for the ultimate view. Be... More

Stone mountain is beautiful and rich in history. The park offers a copious amount of trails ranging from easy to difficult. You can only catch a glimpse of the mountain face as you are driving. In order to see the mountain face, you must take a trail. If you don't have time to hike, you can view the mountain from... More

We hiked the lower half of the loop trail so we could see the waterfall. The trail was super easy, and there are stairs leading up to the top of the falls. The leaves are just now starting to change. It should be perfect in about 10 days. I’m thinking the weekend of Oct 26 should be perfect. Hopefully the... More

Spent two nights in our small camper in the RV campground. Dead level alphalt pad for the camper with a nice gravel tent pad and picnic table. All asphalt roads, so not at all dusty. Well tended. Very clean and spacious newish bathrooms. 20/30/50 amp service available. NC state park so officially no alcohol. The scenery and hiking are second... More

This is a beautiful state park. They have a variety of short hikes with very nice scenery. My husband and I took the Cedar Creek trail. You hike along a small creek through a forest of mountain laurel and pines. This would be absolutely beautiful hike when the mountain laurel is in bloom! The trail goes passed the an old... More

Although I've lived in North Carolina for years, I had never even heard of Stone Mountain State Park. We went on a whim and it turned out be a great day out. The waterfall is the most impressive I've seen in NC. What sets it apart is that stone it flows over is almost perfectly smooth so you get a... More
