Took two of my grandsons on a hike this past Saturday to Stone Mountain. We visit the Park at least once a year with friends who visit but this is the first time to climb the granite in 12 years. Needless to say I didn't remember the climb. There are two ways to tackle the climb...hiking to the falls and... More

Wife and I have visited this park which is only an hour or so from our home many times to hike its trails. We have never camped there before (we generally go on up a bit further and camp on the Blue Ridge Parkway at one of the National Park campgrounds such as Price Lake) but decided to pull our... More

I spent a few hours hiking in the park with my young son and we had a lot of fun. To help keep my son engaged and entertained during our hike, I found an interesting iPhone app called "Git Your Goat." It lets you create a lot of goats along the trail and when you reach the spot with a... More

Amazing natural formations and spectacular 200 ft. waterfall, less than an hour from Winston-Salem! The first time you see the dome your jaw will drop! What I love about this place is that you can swim and wade in the streams on a hot day and there are few people around during the week. It's a terrific hike and great... More

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
