Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the Atlanta’s most unusual trails crosses the exposed granite hills, wetlands, and forests at Arabia Mountain, taking you back nearly a half billion years in time. Arabia Mountain is a monadnock, an outcrop of rock, near Lithonia (Greek for “place of rock”).

After nearly a century of quarrying the stone, the Davidson Mineral Company donated the property to DeKalb County for a park in 1973. In 2006 Arabia Mountain, Panola Mountain, and surrounding areas were recognized by the National Park Service as the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area. Today a PATH Foundation multiuse trail links Arabia and Panola Mountains."
