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) and a little bit of altitude you may want to increase your cardio before you attempt the hike.

Overall it is a beatiful trail that shoudl be on any hikers must see list

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 Bald, whose natural splendor has been diluted with the large building at the summit, Rabun Bald's mostly natural state offers amazing 360 degree unspoiled views. A large fire tower at the top places you just above the tree line and you can see clear to the horizon in every direction. The panoramic view is particularly splendid in the fall. Be sure to take plenty of water with you.

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

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.
