Trail Overview

The Stone Mountain system currently offers 32 miles of challenging intermediate to advanced level OHV trails with nine stunning overlook vistas never before offered to the public. Many of the overlooks have rest areas and picnic tables for outdoor dining with unmatched views.

Considered to be a “technical trail,” Stone Mountain is a “Blue and Black” rated system that will appeal to intermediate riders with families, but also offers challenges for the hard-core enthusiast. The system offers easy to moderate climbs with loops, allowing riders to branch off and test their skills on steep technical challenges.  Want to improve your skills, or challenge your skills? Stone Mountain is the trail for both!

Located at the trailhead is Leeman Field Park, complete with full service RV sites, permit office and park amenities including swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, 2 children’s playgrounds, a sand box, baseball fields, access to the Powell River, and 3 picnic pavilions.

NOTE: Pennington Gap is an OHV friendly town from sunup to sundown on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. OHVs are not allowed on town streets Monday – Thursday.  This trail system is considered “multi-use”, allowing ATVs/UTVs, dirt bikes, mountain bikes and hikers, but not for equestrians.
