Stone Mountain State Park
3042 Frank Pkwy Roaring Gap, NC, 28668
Located less than an hour northwest of Winston-Salem, Stone Mountain State Park features some of the best hiking trails in the state. The park's signature trail is the moderately strenuous Stone Mountain Loop, a 4.5-mile trek that leads to the top of the 600-foot granite dome. Along the way you'll encounter a towering 200-foot waterfall, a historic homestead, and a picturesque rolling meadow before ascending the summit, where a postcard-worthy view awaits.
