The official web site provides good information about the main part of the refuge, and its hiking, fishing, and hunting opportunities.
Browns Mount reopened to the public in June 2010. As of this writing, the official web site is out of date. However, the contact information is correct, so you can use that to get the latest information.
For at least 1000 years, Browns Mount has been recognized for one of the
best views in Middle Georgia. A short but moderately steep trail leads to a view across the Ocmulgee River valley and the city
of Macon. Other trails circle the summit. The trail from the parking lot to
the scenic view is well maintained, but other trails may be difficult to
follow. At one time, the site was used for school groups, so the site
includes a large picnic shelter and the parking lot can accommodate
busses. There are convenience stores and fast-food restaurants nearby at the
interstate highway interchange.
Before going to Browns Mount, you may want to print a guide to the scenic overlook (203 kb).
From the south, the Stone Creek Access is 15.6 miles (25 Km) north of the junction of State Route 96 and US Highway 23. The Longleaf Pine Trail and Brown's Mount are further north.
