    The relatively short hike up to the summit was well worth the prize. The views from the top are simply amazing. Best place I've been to in ATL so far. Breath taking sunsets.

    Coming down from the summitt an nice alternaive is along the fence. Great views down at Lakes GC and Confederate Hall. Trail veers through woods where you will see unique wildflwrs, birds + few ppl

    Great view from up here! Also, check out some of the pools around for some wildlife and rare plants :)

    I went up while it was raining. Special treat: A river down Stone Mountain. Wear proper shell clothing and keen river shoes. Be careful. The empty mountain is worth it. All Yours!

    It's quite the accomplishment to make it to the top but wear shoes with good grip. Flats, sandals, anything other than athletic shoes or hiking boots is a bad idea.

    The view of course. Lots of people but skylift moves quickly and there is plenty of space to enjoy your time.

    Be sure to bring at least a windbreaker! Windy and cooler at the top. Ohh... and don't buy the $3.50 drinks at the gift store! LOL

    There's a small shop at the top with food and drinks but it's very expensive with nothing more than stuff like chips and cookies.

    Take your own trail mix or snacks for the summit. A Camelback definitely helps.

    The park opens at six am and in the summer early morning walkups are nice and cool.

    Walk up the steep rock trail to the top of Stn Mountain. It's an Atlanta tradition. I like sitting near the north face overlooking the lake.
