Views of the Piedmont, the Blue Valley, and Rabun Bald are excellent. The trail is a steady climb of about 400 ft. over a distance of about half a mile one say.

Park your vehicle in downtown Highlands. From downtown Highlands, take highway 28 south toward Walhala for 0.2 miles until the road makes a sharp curve to the right. Go straight ahead at the curve onto Satulah Road. Half a mile up the road the road forks, continue straight ahead on the left fork to the end of the road, a distance of about 0.4 miles. The trail to Satulah Mountain is the rocky old road bed to the right. Follow this road bed an additional half a mile to the clearing at the top of the mountain.
