Chickamauga Creek Trail Spur Professional Reviews and Guides
"The trail lies in the Chattahoochee National Forest, straddling the ridgeline that separates the Tennessee and Alabama River watersheds. Ponder Branch flows south to the Alabama River system. East Chickamauga Creek flows north before emptying into the Ten"
--Donald Pfitzer, Hiking Georgia (Falcon Guides).
"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."
