  • Absolutely loved it! Truly amazing and beautiful! Very well kept up and the trails were better than I expected and are kept up by volunteers. Great place for couples or families. Kid and pet friendly. Exceptional views! I highly recommend it and will be returning myself as well.
  • Probably the best place in Georgia to see the sun rise. Prepare to walk up a bit, will be a pain for few. If you are lucky you can have a calm and private sun rise experience!
