Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2014


Picked a beautiful day to climb to the summit of Stone Mountain.
We're just starting out with our summit-collecting, so this was a great first challenge. :)

Short hike to the top made somewhat more interesting by carrying two laptops up in my backpack. Great views of Atlanta if somewhat hazy. The hidden treasure of Stone Mountain Park are the rivers and associated hiking trails on the drive in which I also visited. Some of those secluded hikes are well worth the trip and remind you of what the South was like before cars, roads and buildings.

Hahah didn't know this would be listed on here ... my college T&F team took our spring break spring this year to Atlanta, and this was one of our side activities. Scenic, fun

cable car to the top was surprised to see the Atlanta skyline to be divided between Atlanta to the south and Buckhead farther north.

(Kevin said) >> "The best time to go is on the 4th of July"

As of 2009, the summit trail is closed at 8 PM, and the mountain swept by rangers. I drove an hour from Acworth with my wife and son to sit atop the summit and see all the firework displays in the Atlanta area only to discover that such an activity will no longer be possible. It seems that every year the adventureous amoungst us are shut out in the name of "safety". Soon, we'll need permits to leave the house...

Fun hike we did as part of our spring break. Unique place, and a beautiful view from top. Lots of company on the trail up.

Yes, it has been commercialized, but I would consider this a must see if you are in Atlanta. My wife and I hiked to the top and it is an incredible formation despite the development. The surrounding parks are also worth seeing and provide room for recreation for the local residents.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2003


Can't remember the exact date but I went up it twice in June of 2003. It was pretty hot but a great time to get out of the city; I was in Atlanta for 5 weeks (business). Didn't even realize this was on summitpost :)

JCarlsonNice Break  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 27, 2008


Although it is a nice break from Atlanta, the heated building on the summit quickly reminds you where you are. I would climb it more often if it didn't cost $8 to get in the park. Kennessaw Mountain is just as good for training, and easier on your joints.

fridayFun climb with family  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 22, 2007


Hiked up with the family, to include a 10 and a 6 year old daughter. Even my father climbed it to the shelter below the summit. It was a fun, the weather was overcast, but no rain. Makes my 6 year old daughter's first mountain, along with my older brother's first mountain, with hopefully many more to come.

Wish it was a lot taller. But, still fun.

This was a very pleasant walk. I was amazed by the breeze on the summit. Very constant, steady, strong wind. Lovely day.

A nice day to be out there! Was a little surprised that I could get popcorn and coke at the top, but decided to nibble on my carrots instead before heading down. :-)
