Stone Mountain is a quartz monzonite dome monadnock and the site of Stone Mountain Park near Stone Mountain, Georgia.
At its summit, the elevation is 1,686 feet (514 m) above sea level and 825 feet (251 m) above the surrounding area.
Stone Mountain is well known for not only its geology, but also the enormous rock relief on its north face,
the largest bas-relief in the world. The carving depicts three Confederate figures, Jefferson Davis,
Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, and has been the subject of widespread controversy.
Stone Mountain is more than 5 miles (8 km) in circumference at its base. The summit of the mountain can be reached by a walk-up trail on the west side of the mountain or by the Skyride aerial tram.
