Hiking is very popular in and around Dade County. Cloudland Canyon State Park has some of the most scenic trails in the Southeast. Public trails are also available within the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park on nearby Pigeon Mountain and at Lula Lake (where entry is allowed only on specified dates). There are many other trails in the area; too many to mention.
Both road biking and mountain biking are also popular here in Dade. A large portion of Lookout Mountain Parkway has recently been designated as part of the Chattahoochee Trace route of the Georgia Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and the National Off Road Bicycling Association (NORBA) holds meetings atop scenic Lookout Mountain.
If camping and fishing are what you seek, look no further than Lookout Lake just off Hwy. 136 on Lookout Mountain. From bait to boats, Gladys (706-657-4533 or 706-398-1970) has all you need.
You can ride a horse in a beautiful English countryside setting at nearby Reflection Riding.
Picturesque Lookout Creek can be paddled by canoe or kayak. Put in near Rising Fawn, GA and take out near highway 136 in Trenton.
You will find our local golf courses to be both scenic and challenging. Within a 30 minute drive, you will find a course to fit any skill level or budget.
