Locate It: Trenton

The seat of Dade County in northwest Georgia, Trenton makes it easy to enjoy the beautiful valleys nearby and the grandeur of Lookout Mountain. Trenton is the perfect base for exploring caves, hang gliding, and many other activities.

Hang gliding is particularly popular here. With Lookout Mountain Flight Park nearby, the winds and terrain are ideal for this sport. The park also offers paragliding, and staff teach safety and how-tos for first timers.
Caves are probably the main attractions for visitors to Trenton and Dade County. While most caves are on private property, several state-owned caves in the area allow exploration. Check out Ellison’s Cave in the Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area; Sitton’s Cave in Cloudland Canyon State Park; and Howard’s Waterfall Cave Preserve.
For anglers, Lookout Lake near Trenton has everything from bluegill and carp to bass and trout. Catfish are also plentiful here. Cloudland Canyon State Park also offers excellent fishing, as well as Getter Lake.

Golfers will find a welcoming space at the Trenton Golf Club. While the course is challenging, the beauty of the mountain backdrop will make your day on the links special.
The Lookout Mountain Parkway is a 93-mile highway that runs through Dade County. Named by Reader’s Digest as one of America’s Scenic Drives, the parkway takes you from Alabama into Georgia and on into Tennessee. Cloudland Canyon State Park is along the route.
Looking for something to do outdoors after dark? The Wilderness Outdoor Movie Theater is the place for you. This open-air, drive-in theater with two screens and concessions provides a great way to relax after a day of fishing or caving.
