Description

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.

The loop can be accessed from either the north or south end, although the visitor center is located at the north end. Use the short Laurel Trail Spur to connect to the Indian Seats Trail. If you’re looking for a moderate workout, run the loop clockwise. Or for a milder way to the top, take it counterclockwise.

On the way up, peer past barred tunnels into old abandoned gold mines. The loop has many well-marked connector trails which allow you to customize your run to the length and section that is right for your group.
