Stone Mountain is not immediately visible upon entering the park that bears its name, but this magnificent 600-foot granite dome is well worth the wait.

Sunlight and shadows dance across a broad tapestry of stone. White-tailed deer emerge from the security of the forest to graze on meadow grasses at the mountain’s base. They have 16 miles of trails to hike.

The Stone Mountain Loop Trail first leads hikers .75 miles to the summit of Stone Mountain then continues 1.25 miles to the top of impressive Stone Mountain Falls.

From the falls, the trail leads two miles to the meadow at the base of Stone Mountain and back to the trailhead.
