The Arabia Mountain Trail winds its way through giant rock outcroppings, past rushing streams plunging in woodland waterfalls and among farmland and fields of wildflowers undulating in the breeze. In addition, Klondike Park and the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve provide beautiful vistas and quiet splendors.
There are several side trails, which are all part of the main trail complex and which link the town of Lithonia as well as Evans Mill Road and Panola Mountain State Park.
At its southern end, the trail connects to the Rockdale River Trail
, which will one day stretch 13 miles.
Lithonia is just north of I-20 and US 278. Parking is available in town (the north end of the trail) as well as at the following:
Stonecrest Square/Mall Ring Road; Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve off Klondike Road (north and south parking areas); along Evans Mill Road between Rockland Road and Salem Road; along Brown's Mill Road (Rt 212) southeast of Evans Mill Road; and at Alexanders Lake on Flat Bridge Road SW.
