Press Page: AMP Adventures


Lithonia, GA – 5/11/2015 – As temperatures rise and the sunscreen comes out, the partners of the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area (AMNHA) are gearing up for an exhilarating line-up of outdoor adventures. With river exploration, free bike rentals, campfire folktales and “s’more” there is something for everyone! While free, many events have a limited amount of space so participants should RSVP now to save their spot.

All of these activities are located 20 minutes from Atlanta in the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area and are part of “AMP Adventures.” This is a celebration of outdoor fun along the Arabia Mountain PATH (AMP). The 33+ mile paved trail is dedicated to hikers and cyclists and is quickly becoming known as Atlanta’s most scenic trail. The photos below clearly show why. All photos are courtesy of the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area.
