More About The Things To Do In Atlanta With The Family At Stone Mountain Park
Walk Up the Mountain
Open from dawn to dusk, the walking trail to the top of the mountain is one of Park’s most popular activities. Trek to the top and reach 1,686 feet above sea level. You’ll take in incredible views of the city, reaching as far as 60 miles on a clear day. The hike is vigorous but doable by most family members, for those that can’t hike, they can meet you at the top via the Skyride.
Adventure awaits at the Park with our high-energy entertainment and thrilling attractions. Soar up 825 feet to the top of the mountain on the Summit Skyride, or take a ride on the Scenic Railroad for an open-air journey around the base of the mountain. Don’t miss out on the All-Attractions Pass for unlimited access to attractions while you’re at the park!
Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision®
For nearly 40 years, our Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision has captured the attention of Park guests. The Lasershow, displayed on the world’s largest screen, is the perfect activity for families to lay out a blanket on Memorial Lawn and marvel the night sky is lit up with lights, lasers, and fireworks. A trio of flame cannons, choreographed drones flights, and a North America’s largest fire wheel add a punch to the show making for an incredible night to remember.
Electric Bike and Segway Tours
Take the family on a group cruise around the mountain on a Segway® Personal Transporter or a Pedego Electric bike. Go on your own adventure on the electric bikes or take a guided tour on Segways for a unique perspective on the Park. Children must be 12 years or older to ride.
Fishing on Stone Mountain Lake
Nothing says family memories like fishing together. Fish from the bank or launch your boat (10 horsepower or less) from the private boat ramp near the Evergreen Marriott, and then cast your pole on the Park’s 323-acre lake. Fishing is permitted from 6:00AM to midnight with a GA fishing license.
Get all of the kids’ energy out by strolling around on one of the seven hiking and walking trails in the park. Some are more difficult than others, maxing out with a 5+ mile trail around the base of the mountain. Be sure to check the terrain and distance before heading out.
Make memories on the lake when you rent stand up paddle board, canoe, pedal boat or kayak. Not so steady just yet? Take a class as a family to perfect your skills. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
