Planning a trip to the National Heritage Area?

We’ve got some ideas to get you started.

If you have an hour:

  • Plan a hike up Arabia Mountain.
  • Take a tour of the AWARE wildlife rehabilitation facilities.
  • Stroll through the soft trails at Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve or along the PATH trail.

If you have an afternoon:

  • Bike the PATH trail from Lithonia to Panola Mountain. About 24 miles roundtrip. It’s a challenge! Maps available here.
  • Make an appointment to visit the Flat Rock Archives and discover a 150+ year history of resilience.
  • Visit the Monastery of the Holy Spirit and the Monastic Heritage Center.
  • Take advantage of one of Panola Mountain’s guided hikes, including afternoon, Half-day and Moonlight options.

If you have a weekend:

  • Schedule a retreat at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. Click here for their most recent calendar. All faiths welcome.
  • Contact Panola Mountain State Park to spend a night in a tree!
