Get a jump start on spring with the Triple Hike Challenge!
During this guided hike, adventurers conquer the peaks of Stone, Arabia, and Panola Mountains in just one day. While exhilarating, this isn’t a race. You’ll pause to see the spectacular plant life and hear the surprising history of each mountain as you climb. You’ll find out how one of these landmarks almost became chicken feed and see elf orpine fill vernal pools with a red carpet of crimson leaves. As a sweet treat, each Triple Hike ends with a campfire and s’mores.
Triple Hikes are being offered throughout March as part of the fourth annual Monadnock Madness, a month-long celebration of the breathtaking landscapes right in our own backyards. Monad-what? A monadnock is an isolated stone hill, and Metro Atlanta is lucky to have three of these geological oddballs.
Monadnock Madness features dozens of exciting events throughout March including the Monadnock Madness Metric: a 60+ mile supported bike ride between the mountains! You can also join a sunrise mountaintop yoga session to welcome spring, or learn different photography skills at each mountain during a hands-on photography workshop.
Make sure to check out the full event schedule for all of the scheduled fun. As an extra bonus, anyone who visits Stone, Arabia, and Panola Mountains in March can earn a unique souvenir and bragging rights.
