Join us for a bike ride, a hike, and a bike ride back! We will ride 6 miles on rural roads to Sawnee Mt Preserve. Park our bikes, slip on our boots, hike on the trails of the Sawnee Mountain Preserve, and then ride back to our cars with the option of enjoying each others' company on my deck with beverages you bring and snacks that will be supplied or brought and shared.
We'll be biking single track on rural roads that are mostly designanted as bike paths. We'll hike up to the Indian Seats, a natural rock formation at the top of the trail system, which offers a beautiful setting for enjoying the views of the North Georgia Mountains. Here we can take a little time to enjoy the view. We will then hike back to our bikes, ride back to SCF and everyone is invited to stay and enjoy the afternoon with your choice of beverages that you bring (BYOB) and snacks that are shared.
We'll meet at the pool parking lot of the Starr Creek Forrest Subdivision. We'll mount our bikes and ride to Sawnee Mountain Preserve Visitor Center on Spot Rd. and hike directly to the Indian Seats to enjoy the view! We will then return to Starr Creek Forrest and everyone has the option to stay and enjoy beverages and snacks.
