We went early in the morning during the winter but it was still a great hike. We did the stone creek trail- I think that's what it was called. We saw a waterfall and followed it all the way down and continued following the creek. We ended up hiking a good 2.5 out and 2.5 back. We passed by the... More

My wife and I traveled to this park after reading about it on other camping blogs. It is so popular that we had to make reservations 6 months in advance. We stayed for 7 days, arriving and leaving on a Sunday. We were hauling our camper, so we picked our route carefully as the roads get narrow and twisty the... More

Stone Mountain Park is a beautiful state park. They have a couple of waterfalls and swimming holes that you can bathe in during the summer months, but watch out the water is COLD, but the kids don't mind it. There are picnic areas, and a beautiful wildlife. You can drive down the main road in the park real slow and... More

A short easy hike to the waterfall will leave you with a breathtaking view of this beautiful site! It is worth it to take the stairs to the bottom of the falls!

Its a beautiful state park with some beautiful sites like Hutchison Hermitage and a Stone mountain amidst the park. You can begin your trail from the visitor center. It will take you uptill the mountain top, then climb down the stairs, enjoy the waterfalls, continue the trek to the Hutchison Hermitage area and walk back till visitor center. Its going... More

It was a beautiful trail to the Stone Mountain Falls.The waterfall area is so peaceful. I had a terrible time convincing my children it was time to go. They felt so relaxed and simply did not wish to be pulled away. It would be a great place to bring a picnic. There are 300 steps leading down (and up!!!) from... More

Despite misty and cool conditions, enjoyed another great day of hiking at Stone Mountain. Having completed the loop trail several times, we picked several different trials and once again, had an enjoyable time. Also rode around the campground - had not view those sites before -definitely will return now to camp!

The waterfall area was beautiful, my dog enjoyed dipping his paws in the area at the bottom while I took a few pictures. The area at the summit had a beautiful view of the mountains. We sat on the dome and enjoyed the view for a while. We went towards the end of September, but I'd imagine this view is... More
