Rock outcroppings the size of football fields
The trail explores the Arabia Mountain area, comprised of three distinct â€œmountainsâ€ made of Lithonia gneiss. There are ock outcroppings the size of football fields, streams rushing over woodland waterfalls, hundred-acre farms along the trail. It winds through 2,000 acres of protected parkland in south DeKalb County. From the top of Bradley Mountain the trail is not marked, but it is easy to pick up near the bottom. On first sight, Arabia Mountain will look a lot like Stone Mountain because both are rock outcrops. The trail features several new arched granite bridges, a wooden boardwalk, and a short segment over a rock outcropping.
