Chickamauga, Georgia Map

very kid friendly trail that leads to a falls you can go in. It was very relaxing.

Very short trail but very easy and well maintained

This trail is short to say the least,but to say the scenery is spectacular is an understatement. perfect trail for kids, lots of plants and animals for them to see. the walk is a little slick after a rain when the boardwalk ends. pure beauty.

Great day for hiking mid 70's. Me and Millie dog knocked it out today in 3 hours

most fabulous trail in the rainy season this waterfall is just amazing and very unique! keep in mind it is a seasonal fall.

4 stars for one of the most unique waterfalls I've ever seen! There are huge walkthroughs, almost cave like. Pictures don't do it justice... enormous! (I'll post a pic with my friend which will hopefully give some scale.) A really nice, peaceful hike! Pretty flowers too!

I enjoyed this trail The entire route took about 5 hours. But we weren't in any hurry. Just enough elevation to be a little challenging with plenty to see. I would definitely do this north to south

Hard to find. From intersection of 193 & Hog Jowl Rd drive about 2 1/2 miles south until you see Andrews Ln on your right. You want the next road to the left, but it"s hard to see and the road sign was down in mid February 2017. It's about 0.1 mile from Andrews Ln and changes from pavement to gravel to dirt with one shallow creek crossing. It's mostly one car width so watch & listen for cars coming the other way. Plenty of parking at the end (about one mile).

This trail was definitely tough but the views are worth it. Definitely bring your own water.

Even though it barely had any water running it was beautiful. I will be back once we are out of a drought.

Hiked this with my 9 year old son. The boardwalk is nice, but only runs 1/10 of a mile or so. After that, there is a decent trail, but when it's wet, expect quite a few slips and falls. The waterfall at the end of the trail is cool, but with little kids, you're going to have to work to get there.

My family and I have hiked this several times. I have to agree with some of the other reviews, the best part is the beginning of the trail, heading up to the designated campsite. Large field for a picnic and the kids to run around in, but the rest of the trail is just so-so. Several unsafe spots for young ones. Great view over the falls, if you don't mind getting up right to the edge.

I tried accessing the trail and found the road to be way too difficult and steep and absolutely treacherous for my VW Jetta even though I'm a crazy driver. pretty much only accessible via truck or jeep. Nice scenery though on the way is why i gave it 3 stars.

I did this trail because it was close to home. It's not worth traveling to see. It's a good hike but nothing special.

The boardwalk is a nice feature, but the hike gets SO much better once it ends.... keep going and you'll find a beautiful waterfall.

Honestly, this isn't a place I'd necessarily want to hike alone. It's really remote. And driving to the trail was an adventure that involved going down what appeared to be a one-lane driveway, across a rocky creek bed (in a car!) and finally into a seedy-looking dirt lot. Does anyone else hear banjo music? *nervous giggle* To say that this place was hard to find, is an understatement. My brother had heard of this place from a friend, so we both spent about an hour each on the internet, trying to find driving directions and anything related to the trail. It's VERY hard to come by.

Also, be forewarned that now you are supposed to purchase a Georgia hiking pass or something to that effect. It's not a big deal and can be purchased online for approximately $3... or at certain retailers, much like a fishing license. During hunting seasons, make sure you check online before heading to Pigeon Mountain; I'm told the entire mountain is closed off during certain days to allow hunters free run of the place.

The positive: It was a pretty easy hike, not a lot of chances to get lost either. And the waterfall at the end was breathtaking, and completely unexpected. Definitely worth a trip, at least once, even if I gave this trail a low score. ;)

Worst trail in N GA. Don't waste your time riding this trail. The trail is not maintained at all...down trees and rutted-out sections make this a total hike-a-bike. The trail guide must have been out of date because we spent more time off our bikes then on them. Go somewhere else unless you're a masochist!
