Great spot to get a nice short hike in. Trail is shady by trees so it the temperature was nice even with the hot weather. Pretty lookout spot at the top.

NO PETS ALLOWED, which is an absolutely ridiculous rule. What kind of people agree to rules like this? Way to ruin an experience.

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.

The preserve is a great area for the family to spend the afternoon. You can hike the mountain or explore around the visitors center. My daughter enjoyed the small library. We also feed ducks, turtles and built fairy houses.

Sawnee Mountain is always a good quick hike if all you need is to stretch your legs a bit or are taking little ones along. If you want to do some training it’s an easy loop with alternative routes to repeat as desired.

Hi. It is a hike to the view from the top. If you are going to do the walk, start from the parking lot on Tribble Gap Road, and not the visitor's center.
