Went with my wife and two girls. We walked around five miles. Very easy walk though there were some stairs by stone falls. The weather was great. Looks to have fall leaves next week (first week of Oct.).

From water falls and easy walks to hope you're in shape trails. Stone Mountain has something for everyone. Beautiful picnic areas, walks through rhododendrons forests and open meadows. It's worth a visit. Go here often and never tire of the new discoveries.
