Dicks Ridge Circuit Professional Review and Guide
"This hike rewards hikers with solitude amid rich bottomland forests and craggy ridgetop woodlands. Start on clear Ponder Creek, then meander north and climb Dicks Ridge, zigzagging on old roadbeds and singletrack paths before descending to East Chickamauga Creek. This stream displays quiet subtle beauty and a remote feel, as the trail heads up the intimate valley, shaded by stately beech trees. A final climb leads back into the Ponder Creek watershed, where many creek crossings take you downhill to your point of origin."
