About 15 miles of well marked trails to choose from. The Mountain Top trail is one of my favorites, with wide open views and cairns to mark the route. The red diamorpha is really pretty and unique, living in the small pools that pock the granite surface. Also check out the Cascade trail - you'll swear you're in the North Georgia mountains!

I have only hiked the Bradley Peak and Mountain Loop trails, but I have to say, it was well worth it. It's not a very long hike to the top of Bradley Peak, but it's quiet and at the same time, very beautiful. If you have been to Stone Mountain here in Georgia, Arabia Mountain is it's smaller cousin. The views from the peaks are well worth the trip.
