Arabia Mountain Park

Not far off of I-20 in DeKalb County you’ll find one of the area’s most unique places to hike, bike or just enjoy the beauty of nature – Arabia Mountain.

The mountain itself is a 2,550-acre greenspace that includes large formations of exposed granite, wetlands, pine and oak forests, multiple streams and two lakes. Arabia Mountain is also home to rare native plants like the red diamorpha, which is a type of succulent that blossoms in patches across the mountain in the spring.

HOURS: Park hours are 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.

The rock is 400 million years old. We’re standing on Muscogee, Creek land. My biggest fear is that we’ll end up loving this place to death. So many footprints, it adds up to a lot of impact” – Ranger Robby Astrove

“The area is also very much influenced by human hands. The evidence of quarrying activities are apparent in the industrial debris left on the mountain and of the abandoned structures once used by workers for storage, offices and shelter. The ruins of quarry buildings are found interspersed throughout the park and metal spikes that were used to split the granite are still embedded in the rock,” the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area website said.
