I had a great time with a few of my friends hiking the mountain. We hung out out the top for a good 20 minutes at least. I could have stayed much longer. I'd like to hike up and have a picnic or watch the sun rise/set. The trails are nice and it's an easy to hike.

Truly a treasure in Forsyth county. We hiked the trail all the way yo the top with two young grandsons. The view was worth the hike. Now more trails are opened off of Tribble Gap Road. A beautiful place to spend an afternoon.

Enjoyed a wonderful Saturday morning stroll in this beautiful nature preserve. The fairy trail is great for small children. A must visit if you are in the area with family.

Great place to spend the Saturday morning. The trail is just exhilarating. The views are majestic and I have started seeing my home differently now. We are lucky to be living in Alpharetta. Highly recommended

My sons went to a climbing camp during their fall break from school. I took a quick hike but did not explore all trails. Everything meticulously maintained and preserved.

My family and I have been hiking this mountain for years. They've changed up quite a few trials due to the greenway but all well worth it. Lovely in every essence and a must do!!!!! The views are breath taking and well worth the hike. With fall coming up, no excuses, just do it!

The hike is easy and has a beautiful view with seating at the top. Unfortunately they don't allow dogs. We saw multiple snakes on our trip. There are multiple start points, but we only tried one.
