We love to hear from hikers about their experiences on the Bartram Trail! With the introduction of our new Bartram Trail Hiker Registry, we can recognize the many steps y’all put on the trail! Thru-hikers will receive a modest token of our appreciation for sharing their journey with us.
“Tell us about your Bartram Trail Hike” is a way for us to learn more about the trail’s usage and the adventurers that are blazing trail steps.
The Blue Ridge Bartram Trail Conservancy works diligently to ensure the enjoyment and safety of the trail for everyone. When you tell us about your Bartram Trail hike, you will be helping us better understand what sections of the trail are being used, identify use trends, and prioritize trail maintenance and other Conservancy programs.
We hope you consider letting us know about your hike and we promise not to share your itinerary. If run into a volunteer crew or member outing while you’re on the trail, just smile and say hello! If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a supporting member of the Blue Ridge Bartram Trail Conservancy, head over here!
Telling us about your hike is completely voluntary, of course. You are not required to register your hike to stay overnight. If you would like to share your hiking trip, simply fill out and submit the form below. Please let us know what section(s) you will be hiking and how many hikers are in your group.
If you have any questions about the trail or need a map, head over to our shop to buy one.
We hope you enjoy your hike!
January hike reports we’ve received
Jo “Someday” Swanson wrote us about her thru-hike of Bartram Trail in April of 2022. She’s also chronicled her hike on her blog (link below) which is filled with over a dozen great adventures. Definitely worth reading.
Hi all. I thruhiked the BT last spring and thought I’d share my journal. I really appreciate all you do. The BT had been on my list since I first saw it in 2010. Love that you have full coverage maps now and a website that covers both states. Yay! Good work.Jo “Someday” Swanson

It was a really magical time for me, and I am so grateful that this gem of a trail exists.
J. Polk also told us about his current progress of section hikes on the Bartram Trail. He’s halfway through it and still knocking out steps.
I’ve completed the entire GA section and into NC up to Hickory Knoll Rd. parking lot.J. Polk
