So, this place has a course that takes you downhill on a tube in summer and in snow. The food was good. You can catch your own trout. Go after ziplining at Highlands Aerial park!

A group of friends got together to celebrate two birthdays here. We are MUCH closer to Snow Mountain in Stone Mountain but Scaly Mountain is worth the drive. Better tubing slopes and shorter lines. We really enjoy our time there.
