hiking Stone Mountain, Georgia

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

Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis

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


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.
