This is a great spot to get out in the woods and enjoy some interesting terrain that is real close to Atlanta. It gives you similar terrain as Stone Mt without the huge crowds. If you get back in the woods you feel very secluded. The Arabia mt hike offers a nice little summit hike kids can do. Take some water as the heat will amplify when hiking on the rocks. The area is wide open because a lot of the granite exposures and you can bushwhack pretty easily through the wooded areas. We only hiked to the summit and a bit around but want to go back and check out the lake.

Nice walk over differing types of terrain.
A step back in time! Great geological fearures and natural beauty. A Wonderful place to watch the sun set :)
Plenty of trails to explore. It is close to the city and usually has fewer crowds than most places near Atlanta. And the PATH is great too!
Great paved trails. Very shady, which made it pleasant on a fairly warm day. Pretty easy trails but can be made more difficult if you decide to hike up the mountain. We just happened to luck up and find the mountain, felt the signs to the actual mountain could have been a little better. Even though the parking lot was full the trails were not crowded at all because the trails cover a pretty large area. Great place for a local hike if you live in the area. The lake is also nice point of interest as well.
