“A milder ascent/descent of Wolf Rock, moving along a converted roadbed.”— Mikhaila Redovian
Like the Wolf Rock Trail, this route provides hikers with ample opportunities to admire the changing forest around them. The lower portions are made up of predominantly pine forests, though more and more hardwoods can be seen as the trail climbs to the summit of Wolf Rock. The route is heavily wooded, making it pleasantly shaded in the hot summer months. Be sure to come back in the winter, as there are great views of Stone Mountain to be had from the trail when the leaves are down.
If you're feeling brave, return to your vehicle via the Wolf Rock Trail, otherwise, retrace your steps and return via the Stone Mountain Loop Trail.
