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.
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.
