Sawnee Mountain preserve is a wonderful park in Forsyth County. The visitors do an excellent job not littering and staying on the trails. The signs are clear, the views are beautiful, and it is a wonderful place to hike for 30 minutes or a couple of hours.

I've lived in GA my entire life but had never heard of or been to this spot. They have a few different hikes varying in distance and intensity. My husband and I chose a longer hike, about 5 miles. We definitely got our workout and it was awesome!! Some pretty things to see here and there...mainly cool trees. But no... More

We love Shawnee Mountain Preserve. We live about 10 minutes from there and love to take the short hike with our young children. Beautiful view. There is also a great new playground.

This is a perfect hike for families. The view from the top of the mountain is spectacular! The climb is an easy one for those not accustomed to hiking uphill.

I have heard of the Indian Seats at Sawnee from people who grew up around the area. How they use to go up there when there we no trails. Hang out with the full moon.(Glory Days) I went last Sunday for the first time. What a hidden gem. Nice maintained trails and the view was awesome.

Lucked out with some nice weather in February and took to the hiking trails of Sawnee Mountain. Enjoyed a brisk walk up the mountain to the Indian Seats for a lovely view below of Forsyth County.

This is a beautiful, well maintained park with nice trails. The Indian seats are breathtaking and a great reward for a moderate hike. There are lots of trails and it is perfect for all ages. Definitely check it out!

As a young female this hike is pretty great. There are numerous trails located on a mountain just minutes away from the center of town. I feel safe enough to hike on my own. I really wish one trail or side of the mountain allowed dogs.

Recommended by my boyfriend who lives nearby as something for me to do outside today on my day off. Glad I went! Beautiful views! Not a difficult hike. Took me about 2 and a half hours to do the loop. Cant wait to go back! Road I took there was horrible (curvy, windy and lots of limited sight distance areas)

A short and easy hike just outside of town. When you want to get out of town and into nature without spending hours on the road.
