There are so many hikes & very STEEP steps to see the waterfalls but our favorite part is the little fall and sliding rock that is only a few steps away from the road. Bring a float, or bring a trash bag, and slide down the big slick rock! The water is FREEZING but feels good when it's hot outside!... More

We travelled through picturesque countryside to get to Stone Mountain State Park. The day was beautiful and the views of the Smoky Mountains were well worth the short 1.7mile walk. There were lots of people visiting the park and enjoying the fresh air and the views. The Visitors Center has a small artifacts display about mountain life and the families... More

We took our children ages 5 and 7 here for a day trip and we had a great time. The weather was fine (June 70's for most of the day ), in spite of a quick cloudburst. We parked at the upper parking lot and hiked from the beginning of the "stone mountain falls" trail until it hit the trails... More

My wife and I hiked the Stone Mountain Loop from the upper parking lot. We went left (clockwise). We saw the falls first. Then, we came out from the woods and saw the majesty of stone mountain. What an overwhelming surprise! We hiked up the stairs from the western approach. Rested at the top near the cables. The descent was... More

We really had a great time here. Hiked several areas to the water falls, the smooth rock formation is really something to see. We also took a picnic with us, it's a great way to spend the day.

We took a family hike around the summit loop. There were many beautiful vistas with impressive views of the local mountains. The rock formation in this park is unique with its smooth sloping faces to walk upon. The loop trail took us 3.5 hours with a few rest stops. I would recommend taking the trail starting from the north as... More

Stone Mountain State Park was a great experience. There is camping, fishing, and hiking. The views were beautiful. This place is a great place for first time camping. Basically you're camping, but you're still near your car and have access to bathrooms and a shower. You also get a feel for camping. This place is great.

Stone Mountain has a great variety of beginner to intermediate trails to enjoy. The Stone Mountain loop is longer and more intensive but excellent and totally worth the climb. The full loop includes great views from the top of the mountain, great views from the bottom, adventures along a stream to a waterfall, and more. Don't miss this on a... More

The full loop hike takes you past all the scenery of Stone Mountain( waterfall, rhododendron forest, homestead buildings, etc.) and lets you see this massive stone from all sides. It's only 1.1 miles longer than just hiking to the summit and then back down to the parking lot. And the view from the summit is breathtaking! Don't miss this if... More
