Stone Mountain, NC

I took this picture a few years ago while hiking at the Stone Mountain State Park in NC. That stone is amazing, it is like a huge ball, with very smooth stone surface, seating in the middle of nowhere. Actually it can be quite dangerous in many parts of the hike. It looks flat or maybe slight decline, but it goes forever and then it drops vertically for hundreds of feet. If you loose your balance you will roll all the way down and probably not in one peace.

To the west and north of the stone you can see Blue Ridge Mountains, to the east it would be Piedmont Triad but I don’t remember seeing far out that way.

Long way down from the top of the rock.

Hike also goes by nice waterfall, it seams like most people just go to the waterfall and back to the parking, they never venture on the actual stone. They miss most of the fun.
