Outdoor Activities


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.
