The 308-acre Ridge Nature Area located at the end of Burch Road is bordered on the west by Whitewater Creek and on the east by Gingercake Creek just above where these waters merge en route to the historic Starr's Mill site.

Many miles of well-marked trails offer guests hiking, mountain biking, and creek overlook opportunities. Countless species of flora and fauna make The Ridge their habitat.

The Ridge is becoming known as one of the most biodiverse nature areas in the State of Georgia, and it is home to Clayton State University's Eastern Box Turtle Head Start Program.
