The Stone Mountain Loop Trail is 90% open.   

The Stone Mountain Loop Trail is 90% open. The section from the summit to the Hutchinson Homestead Rd is closed due to damage to a set of steps, so it is no longer a continuous loop for the next few weeks. We ask everyone that hikes in the vicinity of the burn area to be very careful and to stay on the marked trail. Park staff has been diligently removing dangerous snag trees but it is still possible some could fall over the next few weeks. There are also some spots that are still smoldering but those should not be a problem if left alone. We will be working to make the necessary repairs and will advise when these areas are back to normal operations. Thank you for your patience and the benefits of the burn will definitely outweigh any inconvenience now.

Stone Mountain State Park

The massive granite dome at Stone Mountain State Park keeps watch on park visitors enjoying nearly every type of outdoor activity – camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, picnicking, horseback riding and more. There are more than 18 miles of trails, matched by more than 20 miles of designated trout waters in this park that spreads below the Blue Ridge Parkway. A campground offers 90 sites, some with utility hookups, and group and backpacking campsites are nearby. Rock climbing is allowed by permit on the towering, 600-foot granite face of the landmark mountain, and climbers look down on Hutchinson Homestead, a restored mid-19th century mountain farm. Expansive picnic grounds with shelters invite reunions and community gatherings.
