hiking Stone Mountain, Georgia

I heard the best hike close to Atlanta was Stone Mountain.

Some say this is the largest exposed granite ‘stone’ in the world.

LOVED it.

Started with a climb 825ft (251m) to the summit.

Continued with a 5mi (8km) trail run around the varied, pretty base of the rock.

I made good time as I was desperately late trying to catch a flight at the airport.
