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

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
