“I love this place.”

Sawnee Mountain Preserve
Ranked #2 of 49 things to do in Cumming

Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

I hate even writing this review and revealing my secret, but alas, I must. There are 2 parts to the preserve. One is the trail that leads to the mountain itself, along with Indian Seats, etc. It's beautiful and heavily trafficked in nice weather. The other, hidden gem is on Tribble Gap Road and it is a 5 mile ridge hike in almost solitary conditions. If you do this hike and see more than 12 people on it, it'll be an unusually busy day. The last 3 times I've been - 0, 3, 7. And so close to the northeast suburbs too.

Just got done hiking the Sawnee Mountain Preserve and have done it many times before. It is a great few hours hike on a beautiful day. Just long enough and the view is beautiful at the top.
