The preserve is a great area for the family to spend the afternoon. You can hike the mountain or explore around the visitors center. My daughter enjoyed the small library. We also feed ducks, turtles and built fairy houses.

Sawnee Mountain is always a good quick hike if all you need is to stretch your legs a bit or are taking little ones along. If you want to do some training it’s an easy loop with alternative routes to repeat as desired.

Hi. It is a hike to the view from the top. If you are going to do the walk, start from the parking lot on Tribble Gap Road, and not the visitor's center.
