This is an excellent hiking trail that leads to a waterfall about 4 miles in. You can easily miss the waterfall as it is located off a large camping site so be aware. We did this hike in June and it was cool and green. If you are not from around here go to historical downtown Clayton and there's a... More

There is a lot to see on the trails, but I think the highlight of our hike was making it to the peak of rabun bald. There is a observation tower at the top and you might be able to see 3 states from there on a clear day.

Warwoman Dell is a great starting point for the Bartram Trail. I am a novice hiker, just started recently, and this was a good hike for me. We headed out from Warwoman Dell, crossing the road and heading to the waterfalls. I noticed immediately that there is quite a bit of trash at the start of the trail. That is... More

We enjoy back packing and trail running on the Bartram because you can go the the entire day without running into anybody!... The side trip up to Pinnacle Mt on trail 58 liked to kill us, but the view was awesome and worth every vertical step.. suggestion, chose the less popular mts for best ecperience... Yes, Rabun has a great... More

This trail is beautiful and lush, it is also anything but flat. Being from Florida my definition of a hill,is traversing a dune on my way to the beach. I am also an avid hiker, but the trail was a little tough fo rme. That said if you are not used to serious inclines (sometimes for miles at a time)... More

Nice trail and probably hasn't changed a great deal since William Bartram passed through here way back in 1775! We had a very peaceful hike without encountering a soul anywhere along the small portion we walked. It was Fall and all was good!

This hike has long been one of my favorites in Georgia. Whether tackling the entire trail or spending a few hours on a certain segment of the trail, you're virtually always assured of seeing something new each time you visit. My favorite stretch of the trail is the portion that leads up to the summit of Rabun Bald. Unlike Brasstown... More

If you are looking for a hike that is beautiful,well blazed and quiet,I would highly suggest this trail. You won't run into the crowds that you might on the AT, but the time on amy part of it is well spent. Well maintained and full of beauty no matter what the season. The hikes both North and South are moderate... More
