Great trail. Plenty of water and views. More moderate/advanced than beginner duels to some narrow passes and climbing. Really enjoyable full day.

We started at North Chickamauga to hike all the way to the Stevenson Branch campground. I really enjoyed this hike. The North Chickamauga Creek segment is very scenic and peaceful with the creek next to you. We hiked last October, and the creek was mostly dried up, so I would make a note to check before you take dogs so that you know how much extra water to carry in. Also, while the North Chickamauga segment is correctly listed as dog friendly, the Stephenson Branch segment is NOT if your dogs are large and you are not able to carry them down ladders. Make sure that you watch signs and turn back once the North Chickamauga segment ends.

Okay, so we picked a bad day to go for this trail because the water was too high for us to cross the creek. Instead, we choose one of the trails that is definitely a workout and a lot of up hill! We ended up loving it though!
