Turnoff to Stone Mountain Summit
After you leave the Hutchinson Homestead, watch for the trail turn-off over to your right.
The trail climbs steeply, with a few cables to help keep your traction on the way up. Be prepared for many rest stops unless you're in very strong physical condition.
Excellent view of the nearby Blue Ridge Escarpment open up as you climb. Avoid the temptation to get of the trail and explore the granite dome. It's steeper and more treacherous than it looks.
