Experience History. Make History.
For the Trailblazers of Today
History. Art. And the Great Outdoors.
Leaving behind a legacy of art, writings, and an appreciation of nature’s beauty, American naturalist William Bartram’s southern journey found miles of unexplored beauty. With waterfalls and spectacular views nestled in the mountains of Georgia and Western North Carolina and the Appalachian Trail, take a hike through history and experience the beauty of northeast Georgia and North Carolina in the footsteps of William Bartram.
Known as a pioneer of wilderness preservation and exploration, William Bartram navigated uncharted territories on foot and forged relationships with Native American tribes in the area, all of which he recorded in his published journal “Bartram Travels”.

Due to the heavy rains from Hurricane Ida, there are several areas along the Georgia section of the Bartram Trail with blowdowns and erosion. Our BRBTC volunteers are working to clear out these areas within the next few weeks. Please use caution while hiking the trail and send us a trail report.
