Stone Mountain Hypersomnia Awake Walk 2016
Because a Sleep Walk on the Mountain might be dangerous!
Several of us at the recent support group meeting decided to meet and hang out at the base of Stone Mountain. And we decided that everyone should be invited! Our plan is to enjoy a picnic at the base of the Walk-Up Trail. Anyone who wants to hike the 1 mile walk-up trail to the top of the mountain will do so and take a group photo at the top. Anyone who does not want to climb the mountain may wait at the picnic area at the bottom. The hiking group will then rejoin the picnic at the bottom.
What to Bring: your own food, drink, sunscreen and chair. Bring a friend if you want. Bring $15.00/car to park. Bring appropriate shoes if you want to climb the mountain with some of us.
We aren’t guaranteeing anything other than that we want to meet. We are guaranteeing that we will have a good time!
Where to Meet: Park at the Confederate Hall Parking Lot (from the main entrance, take a right and the parking lot will be on your left) and we will meet at the picnic table at the base of the Walk-Up Trail.
We look forward to seeing you there!
