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

Back in the late 80's I worked for the Y.C,C. Youth Conservation Course. We did a lot of trail maintenance. The Bartram Trail was one of the one's we did. There is a water fall about a mile or so up, and then at the top there are Rocks to sit on and enjoy the view. It is beautiful.

Most parts of the trail close to Clayton were easy to moderate, but it can get rather strenuous in places once you hit the 5-mile mark. Bring plenty of water!

Day hikes are easy in Rabun County, out from Clayton, GA. There are waterfalls/rapids that provide numerous photo opportunities. The trail is moderate--lots of flat portions. If you're interested in overnight hiking, camping isn't allowed within 100 feet of the river. Be sure you do your homework before you choose where to start. Portions of the trail are very narrow,...
