Hikers at Eagle’s Rest Park

Eagle’s Rest Park to celebrate its five-year anniversary

Eagle’s Rest Park, atop Mt. Oglethorpe, will celebrate five years of “building the park” beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 23.

The Mountain Stewards will be recognized for their commitment to building the park. They have created three major hiking trails, three viewing decks (one functions as an outdoor classroom), a picnic pavilion and the “Greatest Little Privy” in the North Georgia Mountains.

The fourth viewing deck, overlooking Big Canoe to the east, was built by Ken Rice, husband of Billie Ann Rice, the benefactor of Eagle’s Rest Park.

Don Wells, president of Mountain Stewards, will present an update on the various projects his crew has been working on and also talk about the sacredness of Mt. Oglethorpe.

Boy Scout Troop 20 of Big Canoe will participate in the event by collecting canned food and money for CARES of Pickens and by performing short demonstrations on the four viewing decks.

The public will continue to add stones to the Stone Eagle located on the southern face of Mt. Oglethorpe.

Eagle’s Rest Park is located atop Mt. Oglethorpe and is accessible from Monument Road off of Highway 136 in Pickens County.
