I arrived at the park after walking 20 minutes from downtown. I was able to connect from Atlanta via the Marta train and then the bus. I began my adventure with a short film on the creation of the monument at the Confederate Hall. Another 20 minute walk around the mountain to the recreation area got me a great view of the monument which seems small from the ground. After taking many great pictures I followed a trail up to and around to the direct path and spent 40 more minutes climbing to the fairly flat top of Stone Mountain. The top offered great views of Atlanta and the surrounding countryside. It also had some snacks and restrooms. There is also a cable car option for going back down if you are exhausted. I took the walk straight back down which only took about 30 minutes. It was a beautiful day and I was joined by many other people which made for an interactive afternoon. Note: there were signs posted to be careful if there is rain. I truly believe you need to avoid the walk if there has been any rain or mist as much of the climb up and down is a flat rock that would become very slick.

I've been here several times, both during the day and at night for the laser show. I've taken the Skyride to the top, as well as hiked to the top. This is a great place to go with a good balance of history, nature and things to do around the mountain. You pay per car to enter the park and from there everything is completely up to you. If you are taking a late hike with the intent of nothing else, it will turn into a very cheap way to get out and see nature with other people around. If your health/fitness allows, I recommend hiking up and taking the skyrail down or vice versa. The view from the top of the mountain is breathtaking for such a short mountain. Laser show at night is awesome too! There are some dining options but they are limited. Recommended to eat a little before you come and bring some hydration/snacks.

Stone Mountain Park is a great place to visit any time of the year. There are restaurants as well as plenty of picnic areas. There are hotels as well as a campground. You can hike up the mountain or take the cable car. You can hike approximately 5 miles around the mountain or just visit playgrounds, the train, the carillon, the lake, the museum, the carving, and lots more. It also provides a place to fish or to play golf. There is a cost to enter the park as well as a cost for the train, cable car, etc., but it is a great place to have fun and relax.
