Please join me for a figure eight hike around Sawnee Mountain Preserve along the Ridgeline, Mountainside, and Hilltop Trails.  We will meet adjacent to the restroom building at the beginning of the Ridgeline trail in the 2505 Bettis-Tribble Gap Road parking lot.  Please note that this is not the parking lot at the Visitors Center or the Indian Seats parking lot.  We will begin on the Hilltop trail then continue on the Mountainside trail and finish with the Ridgeline Trail.  We will average 2.5 mph overall with stops for a drink of water along the way.  The trail will vary from gravel path to a well-worn forest path.

Parking is free for this facility.

Required Items to Bring:

Comfortable hiking boots or shoes with good traction


Recommended Items to Bring:
