Woman makes 500th trek up Stone Mountain

Posted: Updated:
STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -

A retired DeKalb County physical education teacher teamed up with some of her former students and some loved ones for a special trek up Stone Mountain on Tuesday.

Margie Bowen made her 500th hike to the top of one of Georgia's most famous landmarks.

Bowen began back in July 2010, never letting her battle with arthritis get in the way. She now climbs Stone Mountain once or twice a week; she made 85 trips this year to reach her goal of 500,

Bowen said she'll take Wednesday off but will start again on Thursday with a new milestone in mind.
