Take A Short 0.2-Mile Hike To The Swimming Hole At Widow’s Creek Falls In Stone Mountain State Park In North Carolina

Exploring the wilderness in North Carolina is quite simply good for the soul. There’s something so carefree about hiking, whether under a canopy of trees or out in the wide open, that’s both relaxing and motivational. And anytime you can combine a fun little trail with a waterfall – and a swimming hole – well, it’s like having dessert smothered in whipped cream and fresh fruit.

This isn’t the only way to enjoy Stone Mountain State Park. You can camp, go rock climbing, picnicking, fishing and more. And if you want to see the best of what the park has to offer, the Stone Mountain Loop Trail leads you to still another waterfall, over a granite dome, and past an old homestead!
