Spring Colors on Arabia Mountain

This trip to Arabia Mountain on Sunday, April 2, 2017, has been cancelled by trip leader Jerry Hightower, due to slow recovery from knee replacement surgery. We all hope he will be back on his feet again soon!

Trip Leader: Jerry Hightower

Description:  Join the Georgia Botanical Society and Naturalist Jerry Hightower for a leisurely paced hike up and around the mountain to view the solution pool gardens, the amazing mosaic of lichens, and small, but interesting, patches of trees and shrubs.  Sculpted over geologic time by wind, rain, cold, and heat; these extraordinary gardens are beautiful to behold.  After lunch we will take the forest loop to the lake and then on to the salamander pools.  This DeKalb County park is both a geological and botanical treasure.

Meet:  10:00, Park Visitor Center

Facilities: In Visitor Center

Difficulty:  Moderate with some fairly steep, but short, ascents and descents.

Bring:  A lunch and water to carry along and we will picnic on the mountain.  You may wish to bring binoculars, hand lens, and camera.  

Limit: 30
