Highlight: Dixon Branch Road
Right in the middle of the Coopers Creek Wildlife Management Area lies Dixon Branch Road, a short seasonal road also known as Ridge Runner Trail. This rarely traveled trail runs along the base of Dunsmore Mountain and Parke Knob all the way to Fish Gap. There is an access point to the Duncan Ridge Hiking Trail, a strenuous trail for experienced backpackers with one of the most challenging climbs in the country at the end of this road. If you are looking for hiking, camping or just out exploring the forest, Dixon Branch Road is a fun easy trail to hit if you are in the area.

Dave G.

Mapping Crew - Georgia

Dave is more of an explorer than a wheeler who loves to find remote locations to hike and kayak fish. Born and raised in Chicago for 21 years before moving to Atlanta, backroads and forests and mountains were a whole new experience and now he just can't get enough. When he's not fishing for stripers on Lake Lanier, you can find him in the mountains of North Georgia, Tennessee or South Carolina exploring and mapping backroads. Just look for the guy with the kayak on the top of the truck!
