“Use this trail to summit Stone Mountain and take in the views from the top.”— Leah Rawdon
In addition to some running aids, there are many roots and small boulders that form stepping stones up and down the trail. The trail passes by many stone carvings, some dating back to the 1800s. At the top of the mountain, there are trash/recycling cans, restrooms, refreshments, lookout decks, and a lift that goes up/down the mountain.
This trail is probably the most popular of all the trails in the park and while it can be quite busy, the main area of the trail is wide and keeps the trail from feeling crowded.
