Sawnee Mountain is a low mountain between the piedmont and Appalachian foothills of the U.S. state of Georgia, north of Atlanta. The name Sawnee Mountain actually refers to the entire ridge of approximately five miles (8 km) in length. At its summit, the elevation is 1946ft above mean sea level, and is roughly 750ft above the surrounding terrain. The Sawnee Mountain range runs southwest to northeast, and consists of five knolls and three gaps (Chamblee, Sawnee, and Bettes). Located only a few miles north of Cumming, Georgia (the county seat), the mountain is easily the highest point in Forsyth county. One of the highest peaks of metro Atlanta, it nudges out its prominently known neighbors Stone Mountain and Kennesaw Mountain by a hundred or so feet each. However, Sawnee is in the far northern exurbs, putting it in third place behind Bear Mountain and Pine Log Mountain to the west.

  • This is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. A fun hike that is a workout but not too difficult. Take time to sit in the Indian Seats and enjoy the view.  more »
  • We have done this hike as a family many times. The view from the top of the mountain is beautiful. It basically makes a loop as a large one way trail. I always see a lot of people running the route. I...  more »
