Stone Mountain is a popular tourist attraction with a literal stone mountain that can be climbed, a lake, hiking trails and more. Special events are also held here throughout the year.
It is not near a MARTA train station, but there are several commute options on MARTA:
Board bus 121 at the Kensington MARTA station on the blue line. However, it isn’t a very direct route and is a long commute. If you are traveling from the airport, downtown, midtown or otherwise on the red or gold line, transfer at the Five Points station to the eastbound train platform and get on a train marked “Indian Creek” to reach the Kensington Station.
The bus ride is about 35 minutes and the walk from the bus stop to the west gate of Stone Mountain park is another 12 minutes (0.6 miles). Exit the bus at the stoplight where Main Street intersects with James B. Rivers Memorial Drive (look for the gas station and cemetery or alert the driver of your destination). Walk east on James B. Rivers Memorial Drive to reach the park entrance (see walking map).
For an easier commute, connect with Uber at the Kensington, Indian Creek or Dorvalle stations to get a ride to the park. Use promo code MARTAGuide to get $20 off your first ride.
