Rocky Mountain Park in East Atlanta offers great adventure for outdoor enthusiasts, a lake for fishing, a playground for children, cycling for all ages, 15 miles of hiking and hiking trails and historical features. Keep the family. On busy days exploring the beautiful scenery, the park has to offer hiking trails, and two popular hiking trails are hiking and cherokee hiking.
The only way to reach the top of the Rocky Mountain is by Shy Lift, a 2.1-mile 700-foot Stone Mountain Walk-Up Trail. This route passes near the Park Confederation Hall and crosses the train route and shows the park flag, where the walk begins to change altitude rapidly, where near the summit, the slopes become very steep. The surface of the paths is made up of smooth sections of rocky outcrops that show shallow pits of scenery, grass houses and pine trees. The trail is a very exciting exercise, but the wonderful views of the surrounding area and the historical carvings along the way make this effort very worthwhile. The rugged Cherokee Trail rises 5 miles from the mountains amidst a 468-foot-tall pine forest, largely due to the passage through the west-west part of the trail. Starting from the old weeping mill, the trail winds its way along a forested shoreline along Lake Kuh-e-Sang with a few spectacular views of the lake that crosses a park covered with historic park timber. After crossing the earthen dam, this route continues along the shores of Lake Vanabel with mountain views despite its huge dome reflected in the wavy lakes. After crossing Robert E. Lee Boulevard at the children’s playground, some gradual slopes begin by crossing a small waterfall and a long-standing wooden wooden chimney. Reaching the base of the mountain’s stone walls, it begins a steep slope to the stone wall to cross the footpath, where it descends from the other side and goes back to the pine forest. As the trail enters the courtyard, the Confederate carvings on the mountain are spectacular. The trail re-enters the forest to reach Grist Mill and complete the ring.
In addition to the long and arduous trails, Sang Mountain Park has several short scenic trails to enjoy. Crossing the historic bridge to the Indian Ocean, the 1-mile ring is the King’s Trail. This is a family walk with some small slopes because it crosses the forested shores of the north and east shores of Lake Stone Mountain and then returns to the parking lot from the center of the island. The nature garden path may be a short loop. 75 miles, but the area has some of the park’s best natural beauty. This route passes through an oak forest that has very easy terrain and crosses several mountain rivers with roots and rocks along the route. Along the way there are several benches with interpretive signs that identify shade-loving native plants and flowering shrubs. A milder route with some steep slopes is the 1.5-mile Muscogee Ring, named after the indigenous Indians who once occupied the area. This route starts with a slow and gradual ascent through a forest of hardwood and passes through some ditches and rolling hills before reaching the lake. The return section of the route along the shores of the lakes becomes more technical with frequent degree changes with native roots and granite covering the route. The site of the 1996 Summer Olympics for archery and cycling is now home to the Sang Park Birds. The ring path runs 1.75 miles through meadows and forests where native plants grow.
For some of the history of Stone Mountain, visit the Mining Exhibition, which is built to tell the story of an industry that took granite off the mountain to be used around the world. Over the years, more than 7.5 million cubic yards have been mined, and almost every state has granite rock formations. Over time, the exhibition explains the role of technology in the removal process. Museums and some exhibitions are now closed due to the epidemic.
The World of Coke Museum in downtown Atlanta is a great place for all ages to display the history of the Coke Company for a bit of excitement away from the Rocky Mountain Park. The 20-hectare complex spans several cross-country exhibitions, from beverage sampling from around the world to the new Scent Discovery. Sampling coke drinks from around the world can be stressful in itself because the Coke Ambassador explains the facts and details about each of the characteristics of the coke product in other countries. A person’s sense of smell is tested by guessing the origin of a variety of scents while learning to smell anatomy, from perception to perception. 3D Theater is a multi-sensory film that takes families around the world to find Coca’s secret formula. Bottle Works lets you take a closer look at the equipment and processes available at a full-size bottling plant as you learn some interesting facts about the history of coke bottling. The attic of the collection showcases the rich heritage of yesterday and the artifacts of today, along with 125 years of Kaka memories.
