The massive gray rock before you is Stone Mountain, formed about 350 million years ago from intense heat and pressure deep within the earth. Centuries of erosion uncovered the rock and sculptured it into the curious shape it is today.
At one time, the hard, granite surface of Stone Mountain attracted the attention of miners. The rock proved to be too difficult to mine and Stone Mountain was eventually donated to the state of North Carolina. Today it is protected as a state park.
