Winston-Salem, NC: Wolf Rock Loop

nc

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 3.9 miles


This 3.9-mile loop through Stone Mountain State Park wanders chestnut oak forest and offers views from the park's signature massive granite domes.
  • Views from Wolf Rock
  • Stone Mountain Base
  • Hutchinson Homestead

A massive, 600-foot granite dome and a 200-foot waterfall are just two of the highlights along this 3.9-mile loop in North Carolina’s Stone Mountain State Park. From the lower trailhead, this route begins climbing the Wolf Rock Trail toward one of the park’s signature granite slab summits. Atop Wolf Rock, hikers are greeted with above-the-trees views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

After descending Wolf Rock, the trail winds back north along the base of Stone Mountain, an imposing granite wall that beckons local climbers. A short detour from the base of the mountain is Stone Mountain Falls, an impressive 200-foot cascade, as well as the Hutchinson Homestead, a representation of 19th century settler life. Explore these sites before wandering north back to the trailhead.
