October 16th (October 23rd rain date)
Join fellow UU members on an approximately 3.5 mile loop in Stone Mountain State Park. This is NOT the classic (and strenuous) Stone Mountain Loop Trail, but rather a combination of Wolf Rock Trail and Cedar Rock Trail. This hike is rated “moderate” with primarily one gentle but long incline near the beginning. We will traverse over some open rock expanses with a chance to rest and eat a lunch/snack atop Wolf Rock, with lovely views of the surrounding hills. We will also have several opportunities to view Stone Mountain itself. The end of the hike will pass by the historic Hutchinson Homestead. Optional: There is the possibility of stopping at Divine Llama Winery on the return, near East Bend, for any who are interested. This winery has a very pleasant patio with outdoor service and access to restrooms. It is also pleasant to walk through the farm and visit the llamas, and they have a food truck on site frequently on Saturdays. Contact Cynthia Braun for more information.
