If you would like to do a decent size hike close to town, and have the second part of the day for yourself, the Sawnee Mountain hike could be what you are looking for... Also Azaleas trees are blooming now. We will be walking just with a moderate speed and enjoying the spring.
Located north of Atlanta in Cumming, Georgia, Sawnee Mountain Preserve provides visitors with 963 acres of scenic passive space that includes 11 miles of hiking trails, picnic areas and an interactive Visitor Center. We will meet at the Spot road location in front of the Visitor center and hike all trails that this beautiful preserve offers with a brisk pace. The elevation gain is approximately 1600 ft.
We will start our hike Saturday promptly at 9.00 am
Please arrive a few minutes before the start time to check in.
We will start with the Indian Seats loop, go across Bettis Tribble Gap Rd., and do the Sawnee loop including Church trail.
We will stop for a lunch break right after finishing the Church trail.
