Explore a land that has taken 400 million years to form. The Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area lies just east of Atlanta along I-20. Dominated by two granite outcrops, it offers natural wonders, compelling history and heart-pumping activity.
Bike along the 30+ mile, paved Arabia Mountian PATH (AMP), and see stunning vistas and historic landmarks. Hikers can discover rare plants and fascinating geology at The Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve and Panola Mountain State Park, a National Natural Landmark. Hike above the trees and see the city of Atlanta in the distance.
Visit the Flat Rock Archives, and see how a group of slaves formed a community that thrived through enslavement, emancipation and segregation. At the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, meet a society of Trappist monks who moved to Georgia during a war and built a place of peace.
You may pick up a brochure about the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area at the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve at 3787 Klondike Rd, in Lithonia, Georgia.
