Rock outcroppings the size of football fields, streams rushing over woodland waterfalls, hundred-acre farms just like grandpa used to have, and fields of wildflowers undulating in the breeze. The Arabia Mountain Trail respectfully visits all of these natural wonders as it winds through 2,000 acres of protected parkland in south DeKalb County. The trail features several new arched granite bridges, a wooden boardwalk, and a short segment over a rock outcropping. Future phases of the trail are funded and in development. These phases will connect Evans Mill Road to Murphey Candler School and Klondike Road with a new covered bridge over Stephenson Creek. Future phases that are yet to be funded and designed will connect Lithonia with Stone Mountain Park and connect the existing trail to Panola Mountain State Park and Rockdale and Henry counties, including a bridge over the South River.

Definitely a big crowd during the January thaw, but there were some great views and the trails were in good shape.

Nice trail! There are actually several trails here that can be done separately or together. The elevation was a piece of cake, even when we climbed up the little mountain it wasn't very steep. We had two dogs and a kid and it was great for everybody. Nice for a beginners hike. Maybe not challenging enough for some.

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.
