"BEAUTIFUL PLACE!"

Stone Mountain is a great place for the hole family and your dogs. Just remember to take some water and good hiking shoes.

Although I want to do a lot more exploring at Stone Mountain State Park - and camping - I wanted to post this review now, which focuses mostly on the Hutchinson Historic Homestead at the base of the mountain. My husband and I visited on a mild February day with sun and 50º weather, and there were very few people... More

What a beautiful park for hikers. We went in February and had unseasonal weather. We had my parents with us who are in there 80's. We hiked to the Homestead. They have accessibility to drive up to the homestead for the elderly or handicapped. Then we walked around the base of the mountain. BEAUTIFUL!!! We did a few other small... More

Simply beautiful. Trails are clear and will give you a good workout while enjoying the view. The picnic areas are super nice.

The loop trail has everything you could ask for in a day hike; breathtaking views, waterfall, big workout, restored 19th century homestead and accompanying history. We hike a lot and this one is one of the top. Agree with other reviews, it is strenuous. A wonderful day with family and our Labrador retriever.

We just took our adult children and grandchildren to Stone Mountain Park. We've always loved going here but have never tried Snow Mountain. We spent about $500 for everyone to ride for two hours. After only two or three times down the hill everyone had had enough. The lines were long and the ride was VERY rough. Too rough to... More

This park is free to visit and provides great day hiking just east of the Blue Ridge. Come early to secure a parking spot -- the lots were full when I arrived in late morning on lovely Saturday in October. The Stone Mountain Loop is definitely a "strenuous" hike. Hiking counterclockwise takes you up a very large number of stairs... More

Start at the visitors center! Good view of the mountain from the deck of the visitors center! We camped here and the campground was great with nice restrooms and even a handicapped shower! Nice trails and gorgeous waterfall! Very well maintained park!

This is a beautiful park with lots of hiking trails, some picnic areas and wonderful views. Start your tour at the Visitor's center to get a map and ask the employees the best route to see what you want. There is a small museum in the Visitor's center about the area. Plan to spend all day here and pack in... More

Wonderful trails for all ages. Magnificent waterfall at end of one trail and the view from the top of the dome is breath taking. Worth the hike.
