Lived in ATL my whole life  Sucess!

6/8/2017 --- Stone Mountain: Georgia --- 1683’
Bree and I made a quick trek up Stone Mountain today. The best thing about it was…..this was the first time summiting this mountain for the both of us!!!! I really can’t believe that neither of us have done it until now. Oh well, better late than never.
o 1.23 miles each way
o Begin at 1025’ and summit at 1686’
o 600’ of elevation gain

Stone Mountain  Sucess!

Despite the crowds, this is still a fun little hike. We did this in the evening and saw a beautiful sunset go down past the Atlanta skyline.

Stone Mountain  Sucess!

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. :)

Crowded but nice  Sucess!

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.

Spring Break 2005  Sucess!

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

Cool day  Sucess!

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

Re: Multiple ascents

(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...

View of the City  Sucess!

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.

Ridiculous  Sucess!

A painted line on the rock marks the way to the summit?!?

From Confederate Hall  Sucess!

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.

Up the trail  Sucess!

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 :)

Nice Break  Sucess!

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.
