"The Chickamauga Creek Trail is easy to access, but traffic tends to be light, and the trail is set deep enough in national forest that you’ll feel as if you’ve found a hidden corner of the world. The trail explores terrain that is a bit unusual because it crosses two ridges that are closer together than most in northwest Georgia, making the valley separating the ridges seem deeper and more secluded than it is. In the valley, clear streams wind among American beech trees, and in spring, trilliums, dwarf irises, and other wildflowers lie near the trail. On the ridges, the forest is much different, with open hardwood forests of hickory and oak. You may encounter deer and wild turkeys."

The wheelchair accessible trail is actually the best part of this trail. When you get to the end of the boardwalk, unfortunately, it is no longer wheelchair accessible, however with a short walk, you have an outstanding view of the waterfalls here. I found the pocket area of the falls to be breathtaking. I could have set and soaked up the beauty for hours.
The South Pocket Loop above the falls offers a very nice view of the falls from the top, however, be very careful.
The South Pocket Loop is used by horseback riders and the trail was pretty tore up from them. It is a good hike at about 6.5 miles, but nothing to really get excited about.
