“Beautiful and quiet”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

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 and difficult.have some climbing, but nothing too

“Helped keep it clean and cleared.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

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.

“A Little Rough, But Worth It!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

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!

“Chattooga River Trail Portion of the Bartram Trail is Beautiful!”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

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, with drop offs, so you may have to walk longer than you want to, to get to a place level enough to camp.
