  • I regularly visit Sawnee Mountain to trail run, both the original Preserve, and the new section across the road (I am not sure if it has a different name or not). Not only do I run there, but I also w...  more »
  • We frequent the Indian Seats trail with our kids. It's not too long, not too short and the reward is really great for what you put into the hike. Sawnee mountain has much more to offer besides just th...  more »
  • Have lived near the mountain and heard of the Indian seats all my life. Took my wife and 3 children for an early morning hike to the top. Was worth the trip. We took the shorter of the two trails and ...  more »

  • Very nice trails. Wish I would've found map resources before I started hiking. Not to say that the park didn't have any, I simply didn't look. Other than that great trails, well maintained, nice elevation changes, kids playground mid hike, etc etc. Highly recommend. Not a difficult hike. Completely covered/shaded and great views. Remember: no dogs, no bikes, etc.
  • Not far from the suburbs, the preserve offers various trails. The longest one being 3.5 miles the rest are a sneeze away. Fall and winter are the best time to check it out. If you're into running the Indian trail really helps warm up. The summit offers a fabulous view, based on the cloud cover. Wish there was an observatory close by to check the night sky.
  • Very nice wooded trails. Excellent scenic view of North Georgia mountains. Trails are natural... Not paved. If you enjoy hiking in shady wooded areas you will love this place.
  • Well designed trail with excellent trail markings. Nicely shaded and not overly crowded. A very nice hiking trail.
  • A loop hike that goes uphill to Indian Seats, a spot where you can sit and enjoy a nice view. The uphill is well graded, so it's not super strenuous (medium difficulty). A nice place to do a half-day. There's a spot in front of the visitor's center with a picnic table. And the visitor's center has a covered porch that overlooks a pond - really peaceful spot to hang out.
