  • This hike sets the standard for a pleasant balance between natural features and man-made enhancements for safety, convenience and accessibility. A friend and I hiked the loop trail from the lower park...  read more »
  • Stone Mountain Falls required about a 1/2 mile walk each way and several steps. On arrival to viewing site, brush had grown up blocking the view. Inside the same state park are Widows Creek Falls, whi...  read more »
  • We camped in loop a, non electric, with our A-liner camper and absolutely loved it. We had the best site in the entire place. ALL of the sites in A loop are shaded, except for 29-37. Loop B is almost ...  read more »
  • The trail is slightly confusing without a map because several trails interconnect. The park is clean and the trails are easy to walk. There are a substantial amount of stairs depending on where you go. The visitors center will supply a map and answer any questions. The visitors center als has several historic relics, a taxidermized bear, and a butterfly collection. You can also visit the sliding rock area. The rocks are not incredibly slippery, so many people were using plastic sheets or trash bags to slide. Bring your own food & drinks.
  • I went there to see the water falls but, it started raining. The park is beautiful lots of wildlife to see. I told my children to look out for deer, then I said never mind because I thought 2:00 pm was too early to see them. Well 5 seconds later we saw 3 of them on the side of the road. I couldn't believe they didn't run away, so I took some pictures. The campground is nice and clean small but it seems cozy. I will be going back soon to go camping and to walk on the trails.
  • We did the a trail from the lower parking area to the summit. The hike was a moderate ascent to the top with lots of fixed stairs. The view was great. The falls is also great at the bottom, but is a pretty good climb back to the top.
  • We came here to hike with 2 toddlers. Made it to the stairs at the top and bottom of the falls and gave up. We'll come back when the kids are a little older. We did make it to the Hutchison Homestead with no problem so we enjoyed the beautiful view of the summit.
  • A bit of a haul from Charlotte, but worth the trip. Great views and a nice ~4mi loop
