Trails

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 access road is closed due to damage to a set of steps from the prescribed fire, so it is no longer a continuous loop.   We will be working to make the necessary repairs and will advise when this area is repaired, safe, and back to normal operations. Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this issue.
