Although the granite surface of Arabia Mountain looks bare, it actually teems with life. While moss, lichen and trees grow out of the rock face, the pools of water that dot the mountain host a variety of aquatic plants and amphibians.
The Arabia Mountain PATH trail is a paved trail that runs from Lithonia to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, located south of Conyers.
The Monastery of the Holy Spirit contains a beautiful chapel and is open to the public, a rare chance to learn about the lives and faith of the Trappist Monks that live here.
Trails meander alongside lakes at Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve and Panola Mountain State Park , both part of the National Heritage Area.
The Flat Rock Archives is dedicated to preserving and exploring the history of one of the oldest African-American communities in Georgia. Join Flat Rock staff to discover the history and cultural legacy of Flat Rock and the surrounding area.
The Arabia Mountain Heritage Area is affiliated with the National Park Service and encompasses a culturally rich area southeast of Atlanta.

Explore a landscape 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 outdoor recreation as well as historic appreciation. 

Bike along the 30+ mile, paved Arabia Mountain 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.
