Atlanta Day 6: Stone Mountain – Historic Walk-up Trail


Our last activity in the Stone Mountain Park is to hike up the 1 mile historic walk up trail.

The reason was the gondola ride was closed during our visit.

It was still pretty hot in the afternoon even though it was a cloudy day. The barren rock reflects heat.

We just have to follow the yellow marking up the hill.

The steeper part of the trail is equipped with railings for support.

Finally, I’m on top of the Stone Mountain.

We rested for a while under the shade to enjoy the view before we headed down the trail. Going down hill is much more easier than hiking up.
