Great National Forest Trail system that runs for miles. Bring your orientering skills with you as the trail is over-grown in places. If you want to avoid the crowds - try the Bartram!

Parked at the trailhead on Hale Ridge Rd. 4.2 miles through the autumnal canopy, past small waterfalls, through fern-carpeted forest, and finally summiting Rabun Bald Mtn with 360 views into SC, NC, & GA. Then 4.2 mi back to the vehicle. A perfect way to spend 4 glorious hours in fall's splendor.

The trails are well maintained and the scenery is beautiful! Dixie Falls is an incredible waterfall that is worth the hike. We loved that you can get so close to it. So much fun and a great way to relax.

My hubby found this hike just outside Sky Valley Ga. Access it off hwy 246 and Old mud creek Rd at the Sinclair store. Parking is limited, mostly on the side of the road. The1.6 mile hike up is moderate but it is an incline the entire way. Follow the yellow path for a scenic trail. Once at the top,... More

We hiked from Beegum Gap to the top on Rabun Bald. The hike from Beegum Gap is listed as 1.6 miles and that seems to be accurate. Although pretty much up hill all the way it wasn't a really difficult hike. I am in my 60s and of moderate physical condition. Even though in the hottest time of the year... More

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
