Bartram Trail story and advice

Rabun Bald from Scaly Mountain

It’s hard to put into words how much I enjoyed the Bartram Trail, even with a crazy climb or two. I wrote up my Bartram Trail experience here, and I compiled some Bartram Trail advice here for those who may want to hike it someday.

What stands out to me is the solitude I enjoyed, the plentiful water (with one big exception), and the joy of expansive mountain views. The Bartram Trail is the southeast at its most notorious and at its best, all rolled into one.
