About This Destination

Follow a section of the Standing Stone Trail to experience a beautiful example of the Appalachian Range close to home. The trail stretches a total distance of 85 miles, beginning at Cowans Gap State Park and ending in Alan Seeger Natural Area in Rothrock State Forest. 


Beginning near Greenwood Furnace State Park, you can enjoy a vigorous 4.54 mile hike along a portion of the SST. This loop utilizes the Standing Stone Trail (SST), Turkey Trail, Lorence Trail, and Monsell Trail, for a beautiful traverse of the Appalachian Range. Following the loop in either direction, the trails feature rocky pathways and switchbacks, eventually leading to the Stone Valley Vista atop Stone Mountain, and a breathtaking view of Stone Valley's rolling hills and farmlands. Bring your trekking poles!
