Great trail with amazing views! The trail starts you off on a ridge line. Take the first .3 mile spur for a fantastic view of Whiterock mtn. Once back on the main trail it will lead you through a tunnel of Rhododendron down to Whiterock gap. Keep on hiking for a big payoff. There will be a second .3 mile spur that leads you to an amazing lookout on the top of Whiterock mtn.
We did this hike with 3 kids in January (no snow or ice at the time). It was not very difficult. Trail is well maintained and marked.
Just drive a little further up the servoce road that Alltrails takes you. You will then see a sign on your right (Bartram Trail). Follow that road for 2 more miles and you will het to a parking area with a trail map. When facing the map take the trail access to your right.
If you like big views without a lot of other people then this is the trail for you.
