Path to Serenity

The path up to the summit of Fort Mountain, in North Georgia.  The mountain received its name from an 885 foot long rock wall located close to the peak. The zigzagging wall contains pits scattered along the wall, in addition to a ruin of a gateway. The wall was constructed from local stones and is believed that the wall was built by local Native Americans around 500 A.D. for religious purposes.

There are also several legends concerning the wall. One legend claims that the wall is a remnant of one of the several stone forts legendary Welsh explorer Madoc.  Another legend is a fortification for Hernando De Soto's Conquistadors or a honeymoon haven for Cherokee newlyweds.
