Runner Notes

The rock face can be extremely slippery.

Description

The Walk Up (yellow blazes) trail starts off with gradual inclines at the Confederate Hall parking lot and becomes steeper as you run higher toward the top of Stone Mountain. There are several areas with grades steeper than 20%, but there are metal handrails to assist with the steeper grades. There is also a pavilion about halfway up the trail to provide a place to rest in a shaded area.

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.
