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

When we visited this park for some trailblazing we had just finished several other trails that week and were a bit sore so we chose to take the Red trail, which was a lower trail and shorter loop than the Stone Mountain trail (the orange trail). To make a long story short; if you are looking to follow the red... More

I am not able to do much hiking but did walk to smaller falls, which was fun but a little treacherous. Wish they had railing and easier paths, lots of roots, rocks that are slippery, have to be very careful. It was fun watching kids sliding down the rocks into the water. The area is beautiful, lots of nice places... More

This park had nothing but one breathtaking view after another. Lots of trails to walk and horse ride through.

I have been here many times. The latest June 13 and 14 2015. This is a great spot for a weekend getaway or even a daycation if you are local. It is in the middle of nowhere.This park has wonderful scenery and if you are lucky enough, a good glimpse of wildlife. It has a wonderful developed campground with a... More

What a hidden gem in this area of NC. We hiked up to the top of the mountain from the lower parking deck. There are quite a few stairs to get to the top, but the views along the way are stunning. Take the time to go out on the rocks just off the trail and just sit. It was... More

Enjoyed riding around the park and had a picnic at the very nice picnic area. Loved the way the picnic tables are spread out so that you aren't right on top of each other. We walked down to the Stone Mountain Falls and I must admit the walk back was extremely tiring. We had to take a few breaks on... More

The park has many different trail options. We hiked the Stone Mountain loop trail, which took us along various sites (i.e. a waterfall, an old homestead). The trail was well-maintained and fairly easy with the exception of one section, which has you climb an abundance of stairs. It was definitely worthwhile; we plan to return and try out the other...

The Stone Mountain loop trail (which we did not complete, but walked to the summit and back to the trailhead) was a moderately difficult hike. It begins as easy with the switchbacks near the summit being the most difficult part of the journey. The view is amazing and well worth the hike!

I didn't have a good time like I did as a kid. I got hurt by the tree roots and dirt. Also staff should hand out bottle of water and made more gate or fences a cross the mountains to make it more safe. If this isn't safe for me or my family I will never return at all. I... More
