Mountainside Loop Trail is a 5.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Dunn, Georgia that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from January until January.
Approach trails of the Sawnee Mountain Preserve's Mountainside Trail.
Rocky at the start and in patches but still traversable for kids. No dogs :(
The first 1/2 mile of this this trail is really just a rock pile with poor footing making it difficult to walk. Not really a hiking trail by most standards. After you get past that the trail is very nice with beautiful large trees. So I would rate this trail 1* for the first 1/2 mile and 4* the rest of the way.
I live near this trail and use it year round for training and overall fitness. Though rocky in certain areas, it's a moderately easy hike with some elevation change. The trail is well maintained and rules are generally followed (Posted: no dogs) by the locals.
