Stone Mountain Park, NC, May 12-13
After leaving South Mountains State Park I headed to Stone Mountain State Park. After my arrival I proceed to day hike the 4.5 mile Stone Mountain Loop Trail. This was a awesome hike. Views, waterfalls, clearly marked trail, and a historic home site. The views were really nice since I could see no development anywhere. After this beautiful hike I fished the rivers for a while. At about 7pm or so I started to backpack the 2.5 mile Widow's Creek trail. (also part of the Mountain to Sea Trail) I signed in for site F (the most secluded). I had a nice stream beside my campsite. Deer and turkeys were very abundant in the park. Campsite was very nice. Perfect hammock trees at all the other sites I passed along the way. Even a pretty waterfall after site A. Weather was great. I was comfortable in my single-nest and I loved my Maccat tarp! In the morning I broke camp and fished for most of the day. This park has a very nice family campground with showers as well. Plenty of hanging spots there too. The pictures tell the story better than I can, so take a peek.:thumbup:
