“A newer trail added to Sawnee Mountain Preserve and accessible from the Ridgeline Trail.”
— Andrew Rau
Many sections have rocks and roots sticking up, but don't let it stop you.
You can access this trail from Ridgeline Trail
, Hilltop Trail
, or Church Trail. The Hilltop Trail
and Ridgeline Trail
having free parking. At one point, the trail will cross a road (that leads to a tower at the top of the mountain), but there is a button to activate flashing lights to stop any vehicles. There are no real overlooks or scenic viewpoints, so it's mainly good for trail running or just hiking. There are a few areas on the northern side that cross small creeks, but the trail is mostly non-technical. There are a few rolling sections, and at times the trail descends/ascends a bit steeply, but those portions are short lived, and overall this is a gentle trail.
Flora & Fauna
Mostly evergreens and native Georgia trees (oaks, etc.)
