Stone Mountain State Park is a 14,351-acre North Carolina state park in Alleghany and Wilkes Counties, North Carolina in the United States. The centerpiece of the park is Stone Mountain, a dome of exposed granite of Devonian age, which has intruded into the gneiss of the Precambrian Alligator Back Formation. It rises sharply over 600 feet above the surrounding terrain. The mountain, which has an elevation of 2,305 feet above sea level, is known for its barren sides and distinctive brown-gray color, and can be seen for miles. The mountain offers some of the best rock climbing in North Carolina, and the park's creeks and streams feature excellent brook trout fishing.
