WHOLENESS THROUGH NATURE

The 1st component is the Davidson Arabia Mountain Natural Preserve. Located on over 2400 acres, is an excellent place for Hiking, Biking, Retreats and Historical Sites.
Arabia Mountain is more than a mountain. It encompasses approximately 12 miles of nature trails and 33 miles of paved bike paths that snake through woods, pass over wetlands, and run through historic barns, ultimately linking the different sites. Though Arabia Mountain looks more like the moon than a mountain, it is rich with plant life, including five endangered plants.
Arabia Mountain Natural Preserve is also home to “Aware” Wild Animal Rescue Center, located right next to the mountain, the center rehabilitate all wildlife species and treats an estimated 1,800 animals per year. While in the area be sure to visit other historical sites: Flat Rock Archives, the oldest black community in Dekalb and perhaps Atlanta, visit the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, home to 21 Trappist Monks who left Kentucky in 1944 and settled here, or take a short hike around The Vaughters Farm, the last working dairy farm in Dekalb County.
