“A newer set of trails open at Sawnee Mountain (on the west side of the existing Preserve).”
— Andrew Rau
This is a new trail for Sawnee Mountain and connects to the Mountainside Trail
(which is approximately 3.2 miles around). The entrance to this trail is located at the back of the parking (near the playground). The first .3 miles is uphill and a bench is located at about .5 miles. Once you reach the end, there are a few picnic tables, and the trail splits to the Mountainside Trail
. There aren't really any views (just trees), but there was some pretty bluebirds and butterflies on the path.
Flora & Fauna
Mostly evergreen and other Georgia native trees (oaks, etc.), but not many other plants along the way.
