Rock Eagle Mound
Everytime I'm in Eatonton, I visit Rock Eagle. I usually hike to the area, since there are tons of marked trails in the surrounding woods. If hiking is not for you, the website below provides driving directions. The website also provides a brief history of the effigy and more contact information.
The best view of Rock Eagle comes from inside the tower. The top windows are a great lookout and picture spot, though bars on the windows can be a pain.
Make sure to bring bug repellant and sunblock in the summer! Also, if you plan on hiking, wear old shoes (Georgia soil will stain them) and watch out for fire ant hills.
Rock Eagle is free and open year-round.
