“A moderate trail with plenty of amazing views to reward you for your effort! It is especially stunning in the fall.”— Heather Pruner
The path is very well maintained and a great run. The loop is well marked, and if you aren’t in the mood for the full four miles, take any of the connector trails to make it a bit shorter. The shortest possible way to get the view is by parking in the southern parking lot (not the visitor center’s lot), and take the trail counter-clockwise right up to the top. I recommend using the Yucca Trail - Yellow Blazes to make a small loop for yourself back to the parking lot.
Sawnee Mountain Preserve’s Indian Seats Trail is a breathtaking loop absolutely worth the visit. Be sure to stop by before the fall leaves are gone and bring the whole family in the fall to capture your holiday card photo with a backdrop of 20-miles of changing leaves between you and the North Georgia Mountains in the distance.
