Unless you have a park pass or want to pay $10 to park, you can opt to park at the SunTrust Bank parking lot located at 5399 East Mountain Street, Stone Mountain, GA 30083, lot for free.  It is a short walk to the walk-through gate, we will be straight ahead near the restrooms building waiting for you.

Bring plenty of water, a light healthy lunch, a smile and a friendly disposition, and you are guaranteed to have a wonderful outing in the wilderness... WOW! As always, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots (please, no new shoes or will be sorry...break them in first!), and of course comfortable layered, clothing.  You may need a rain poncho or jacket for this one.
Don't forget the Leave No Trace principles to which we adhere... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of taking your memories of the adventure, your new friendships, and of course, any photos you may take.
Feel free to contact me by return email or telephone at 678.231.4973 should you have any questions.
