Come join me for an incredible guided tour of Stone Mountain, an iconic must-see attraction while you are in Atlanta. At its summit, the elevation is 1,686 feet. Stone Mountain is well-known not only for its geology but also for the enormous rock relief on its north face, the largest bas-relief in the world. The carving depicts three Confederate figures during the Civil War: Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis. There is an optional nightly, free laser show attraction that is a great way to cool down after a long hike!
The trail is open daily from dawn to dusk, unless otherwise posted. Just follow the painted yellow line and enjoy the unique scenery and spectacular views. Restrooms, a snack bar and souvenirs are located in the building on top of the mountain and are accessible during operating hours for the Summit Skyride.
While on top, 1,686 feet above sea level, we'll enjoy amazing views of downtown Atlanta, the North Georgia mountains and the surrounding area. On a haze-free day, you can see 60 miles from the mountain.
