This is one of my favorite hikes. Very strenuous workout so don't think this is a stroll in the woods kind of hike. We did the full Stone Mountain loop which is 4.5 miles but much of it is steps and climbing so you can get tired quickly if not prepared. We also hiked the Waterfall trails towards the end... More

If you are ever in this area, do yourself a favor and make some time to visit Stone Mountain.The waterfalls are breath-taking!Don't forget your water bottles and hiking shoes. The scenery is worth the energy it takes to get to them

We spent 2 nights in the campground which was very neat, trimmed and scenic. We were lucky to get a site next to a babbling brook that was great to sit by in the shade on a warm day. The rangers were nice, the bathrooms were clean the sites were paved and they're a great value. The bathhouses are actually... More

We chose to go to the top counter clockwise which was a good choice, this left the steps on the downside. It was quite a hike but worth it when you got to the top, it was beautiful. Just take lots of water if its a hot day. A lot of fun!

We were looking for a day trip for a nice hike. Based on reviews we picked this one. The granite dome was a little reminiscent of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite. Just a little, but a amazing feature in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We took the 4.6 mile loop which was a workout in the heat but the trails through the... More

We did the loop hike Labor Day weekend. Loved it! Definitely a workout, but the mountain and waterfall views were worth it. The hike was 4.5 miles and was rated as strenuous on the park map. I asked a ranger if there was an easier direction to go, since it was a loop. She recommended starting from the Lower Trailhead... More

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
