The Bartram Trail

“Advanced”
One or Two Week Trek
Named after famed naturalist William Bartram, this trail covers 117 miles of backcountry thought to be part of his travels in the 1770s. This trip offers an opportunity to witness multiple unique ecosystems daily as the trail meanders through a variety of elevation plateaus in North Georgia and Western North Carolina. Depending on the desire of the scouts, treks can end with a day of rafting on the Nantahala River.
