Indian Seat Day Hike-Sawnee Mountain

Sunday, July 14, 2019

This summer, my wife and I have found a new trail or park to explore each Friday. It has been a lot of fun and we have discovered some great parks.
One trail we discovered was the Indian Seat Trail.

Indian Seats Trail Loop is a 3.1-mile loop trail located near Cumming, Georgia that features beautiful views, winding trails, and a mix of hardwood and pine trees
The trail is rated as moderate.
The Indian Seats Trail eventually makes its way to the summit of Sawnee Mountain, which has outstanding long-range views of the North Georgia mountains.

The mountain is named after a local Cherokee Native American, Sawnee. 
The Sawnee Mountain Preserve Visitor Center is the ideal place to begin your visit to the Preserve. Hours of operation are Monday - Saturday, 8:30AM - 5:00PM.  Admission is free of charge. The Center features interactive exhibits a Mountain climbing wall and area, summer programs and much more.

There are three access points
4075 Spot Road
2500 Bettis-Tribble Gap Road
2505 Bettis-Tribble Gap Road

This area was once the site of abundant gold mining prospects back in the 1800s and you can see evidence of past gold mining.

If you have young children they can explore in a fort and then use the picnic tables for a nice lunch.
