Take in spectacular views on the Summit Skyride.

Have you been in need of an experience with nature? If so, you have plenty of ways to do just that. But there are a few unique things to do in Stone Mountain that combine nature with thrills. The Summit Skyride at Stone Mountain Park is one of those things!

The Summit Skyride is Stone Mountain’s most popular attraction–and for good reason. The high-speed cable car packs patrons in and transports them from the bottom of the mountain up to the summit, 825 feet above the ground.

Once you get to the top, you will be delighted to find some of the most picturesque views imaginable. On a clear day, those who rode the car to the summit can see for 60 miles all around. You’ll take in breathtaking views of lakes, mountain ranges and even Atlanta’s skyscrapers.

The Summit Skyride operates year-round. The ride is included in the Adventure Pass and Mountain Membership, but individual tickets may be purchased. Adult tickets are $9 while children’s tickets are just $7. One-way tickets are also available.
