Sawnee Mountain Preserve



Forsyth County Parks and Recreation


Interpretive Master Plan

Sawnee Mountain Preserve is a 963-acre passive park operated by Forsyth County Parks and Recreation. The preserve offers 11 miles of hiking trails with scenic overlooks as well as picnic areas, a pavilion, and a visitor center. In 2021, HW Exhibits was asked to create a master interpretive plan that reimagines the visitor center and trail experience. We delivered a design concept package including renderings, floorplans, interpretive panels, and dynamic interactive experiences including a full-scale oak tree replica. As visitors move through the visitor center, they will learn about trail etiquette, the history of Sawnee Mountain, and the ecosystem at the preserve.
