Eagle's Rest will be a public place for inspiration, meditation and wellness. The majestic view overlooking the Southern Piedmont and Atlanta will create a peaceful feeling for those who experience the site. The trails and sculpture will be built on Ken and Billie Ann Rice’s land surrounding the top of Mt. Oglethorpe. The concept and design is by artist John Feight.
A Laying of the Stones Ceremony was held on the Winter Solstice to start the eagle sculpture on the southern face of Mt. Oglethorpe.
The main trail will be built around the mountain to connect with the eagle sculpture. The stones will be spaced far enough apart to enable people to "walk through" the sculpture. The second trail will be more challenging for serious hikers. A stone sundial will be placed at the eagle’s head.
The plans are to open in 2014.
