Indian Seats Trail
One of the highest peaks in metro Atlanta
Located in the Sawnee Mountain preserve, Indian Seats Trail is a 3.5 miles from the vistor center parking to the observation deck on top of Sawnee Mountain.
The Indian Seats on top of Sawnee Mountain are a rock outcropping which may have served a ceremonial purpose for native American inhabitants.
There is an abandoned gold mine towards the top of the mountain, it is closed off by a gate but you can peer into the shaft.
Sawnee Mountain Preserve provides visitors with 963 acres of scenic passive space, hiking trails and an interactive Visitor Center.

Indian Seats Trail Report:
This trail is a hidden gem very close to Atlanta, if you are in Alpharetta it’s around a 30 min trip. The top offers very nice views of the North Georgia mountains.
I highly recommend checking it out.
