This is a perfect spot to either start or end a date. Dependent on daylight savings time, you can bring a date here for a mild weather fairly easy short hike to the top of Arabia Mountain and catch an exquisite sunset, before dinner, or when the sunsets late, this can be a perfect sunset to enjoy after dinner as a way to end a perfect date.
The Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve consists of a few trails.
One trail loops down to a lake where the government used to test nuclear explosions under the lake, and rumor has it that the lake is almost bottomless. There is another section of trails that are paved, and perfect for bicycling, and leisurely strolls., and then there is the trail which takes you to the top of Arabia Mountain where you get a awesome 360 degree sunset view.
There is a visitors center at one of the trail areas, and then at the foot of the Arabian Mountain hike there is a small nature preserve / visitors center.
There are plenty of places in the Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve to enjoy a nice picnic. Between taking the loop hike down to the Arabia Lake, having a nice picnic dinner, and then taking the short hike up to the top of Arabia Mountain to take in a very romantic sunset, you could easily turn a visit to this place into a entire date.
If you plan a sunset watch atop Arabia Mountain, don’t forget to bring your mp3 player with the perfect romantic song set to add to the experience.
Trail maps and detailed information is available at the nature / visitor center, or on their website at http://www.arabiaalliance.org/index.html under “planning your visit”
