Thanks to several friends and their Instagram postings, I learned about this gem. Have you checked out Arabia Mountain?
It's located in Lithonia & less than 30-minutes from our home - who knew? On a last-minute whim in late August, we decided to see what it's all about. It was a perfect way to end a weekend & shake off the "Sundays."
Because it was so late in the day, we only scratched the surface, but it's peaceful & I can't wait to go back & see more. I imagine it's busier certain times of the week or weekends, but it's significant enough that I don't think you'd feel crowded in & so much to explore.
The paved trails are ideal for walking, biking, or running.
I want to go back when the leaves start changing this fall & one day will get to the summit! You can learn more here too - regardless of where you live in Metro-Atlanta, it's worth the drive. It's a reminder that there are always new & beautiful things to explore - especially in your own backyard!
