Stone Mountain has six official Connecting Trails. They are marked with orange blazes.
Connecting Trail 1
Connecting Trail 1 connects Confederate Hall to the Cherokee Trail to the northeast. It is 0.4 miles (0.7 kilometers) long.
Connecting Trail 2
Connecting Trail 2 connects Robert E. Lee Boulevard near Confederate Hall to the Nature Garden Trail. It is 0.4 miles (0.7 kilometers) long.
Connecting Trail 3 is a short trail connecting the Nature Garden Trail's east end to the Cherokee Trail.
Connecting Trail 4
Connecting Trail 4 runs along the north side of Venable Lake, passing the chimney of an old homestead along the way. It is 0.8 miles (1.2 kilometers) long.
Connecting Trail 5 is a short trail connecting the Cherokee Trail to the Crossroads area.
Connecting Trail 6
Connecting Trail 6 connects the base of the Walk-Up Trail to the north side of the Nature Garden Trail. It follows the southwest side of the mountain and is the most interesting connecting trail. It is 0.4 miles (0.7 kilometers) long and is slippery when the mountain is wet. The signature of Elias Nour can be found near the north end.
Connecting Trail from Cherokee Trail to Heron Trail
An unofficial (but orange-blazed and probably soon to be documented) connecting trail connects the Cherokee Trail where it crosses the dam between Venable Lake and Stone Mountain Lake to the Evergreen Heron Trail.
See the maps section of the app for the exact paths of the Connecting Trails.
