i have lived in georgia almost all of my life, but had never heard of arabia mountain...until recently.
usually overshadowed by massive Stone Mountain (and its surrounding theme park), arabia mountain is formed from the same granite and is wonderfully quiet and secluded. a small trail leads you from the nature center to the mountain. once there, you may ramble all across the rock face, or choose to walk (or bike) some of the surrounding trails. our children loved it!
i never tire of seeing the mosses and lichens that live in the granite, either...
