Join us for a moderately vigorous, not too fast - not too slow, hike on the trails of the Sawnee Mountain Preserve. The  summit of the preserve  visibly links to the summit of the Blue Ridge Mountain Range, it offers a great view! Often there are low clouds at the peak that add to the mystique. Sawnee Mountain preserve is also home to some of the rich history of the woodland culture of North Georgia’s Native American inhabitants.

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 morning view and greet the day.

We'll meet in front of the Sawnee Mountain Preserve Visitor Center on Spot Rd at 8:00am and hike directly to the Indian Seats to enjoy the view!
