  • We love Shawnee Mountain Preserve. We live about 10 minutes from there and love to take the short hike with our young children. Beautiful view. There is also a great new playground.  more »
  • This is a perfect hike for families. The view from the top of the mountain is spectacular! The climb is an easy one for those not accustomed to hiking uphill.  more »
  • I have heard of the Indian Seats at Sawnee from people who grew up around the area. How they use to go up there when there we no trails. Hang out with the full moon.(Glory Days) I went last Sunday for...  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.
