Take Hwy 78 South to Mountain industrial. Go right until East Ponce de Leon. Take Left. This will take you to the entrance of Stone Mountain Park.

The cost to get into the park now is $10.00 for the day or $35 for a year pass. The specific name of the trail is labeled as the 'Cherokee Trail' in Stone Mountain Park.

Sweet Single track, very technical sections, with some nice climbs.

Review: This is not a trail you can go fast on. There are a ton of roots and at one point you have to run on a slanted granite face for at least a quarter mile.

Review: This is the best trail run in the Atlanta area. It is mostly single track with lots of hills, roots, rock scrambles, a few tight spots, etc. There are several side trails you can add on for additional mileage.
