“A long climb on the north side of Stone Mountain.”— Nolan Sundrud
Family Friendly While a challenging climb, any obstacles can be easily walked.
The trail itself is wide and cut into the side of Stone Mountain, with some nice views. It begins by crossing over Watt Way in between a few homes on an access route, and then begins climbing in earnest behind the homes. The trail ends at an intersection with the Swartz Canyon Trail.
