HikingGreat!

Hiked the entirety of the Georgia portion of Bartram over 2 weekends. The first from the start @ SC line up to Warwoman Dell. Nice hike, plenty of camping spots and water. Maybe even too many sites, but fortunately not in use. Second half, I reversed it and started in NC and went south to Warwoman Dell. First night on Rabun Bald is fantastic - a backpacker's gem up there. But not many camp sites and water is harder to find. Don't pass an opportunity to fill up if you are in the second half of your day. Same with camp sites, not nearly as many as the lower half. While a great hike, if it is raining or early in the morning, you're going to get wet. Trail has lots of growth to give you a nice washing as you pass. Still a great trail!!

As people said it is a bit overgrown. Beginning, bottom & end are a bit of a scramble, but the falls are well worth it. Wear long pants. Strongly suggest trekking poles with rubber tips (if any) removed as the hard clay can be slippery especially if it is wet. People talked about roots, but without them to make steps, some stretches would be much more dangerous. A great hike!

HikingGreat!

This was a great trail for my 9, 10, & 12 year olds. It is a beautiful forest hike with a payoff! Not only do you hike down, but, prior to the final leg, you can check out the rapids where the local white water rafting trips stop to eat lunch. The trail was fun, well groomed, moderate in difficulty, yet family friendly.

Good trail! Fun, bugs were no fun. Its a hike down and the work up the hill on the way back. Good stuff.

Well marked (white blazes), not overgrown, moderate trail, but the falls and the river are definitely worth the sweat.

Nice trail, well marked and very easy to follow. The bugs were pretty bad on our trip though, especially near the beginning!!

This is the first time I have ever quit on a trail. It’s difficult to find the trailhead, the road is treacherous, and the trail was extremely steep, slick and overgrown. I only made it to the first waterfall and just beyond. Don’t go alone. I am an extremely experienced hiker and I was by myself, so I elected to turn back. This is probably a great trail when dry and when the foliage is a bit less dense. It was not a good day for this one. The only bright spot is the first waterfall is beautiful. You have to work for it! Recommendations if you do go. Look for the orange blaze at the trailhead. Wear pants or very high socks, rugged waterproof boots, bring bug-spray, a water source like a camel back, let someone know where you are at and don’t go alone. I would consider gloves to because you will have to grab rocks, branches and leaves to work your way through the trail. I am not sure why Google said this is good for kids. It’s not. The coordinates to the trailhead: (34.8229796, -83.2511048)

Trail is very over grown and hard to see; should have worn longer pants as my legs took a beating from thorns and brush. Also lots of washout, so had to be very strategic in foot placement for most of the hike as it’s easy to slip and/or lose balance. Not for amateurs, and don’t recommend dogs or kids. We didn’t make it to final waterfall because we weren’t expecting it to be as long as it was- it says 2.6 miles but it was actually ~3.3 and we lost quite a bit of time trying to find the start of the trail in the car. Definitely recommend using the map in the app for help with this like other users suggested. Still, a very pretty waterfall in the beginning and enjoyed the creek following the trail and one of the falls at the end.

Great trail with nice waterfall at the end and nice beach area closer to the waterfall. Trail was narrow in the beginning with risk of getting poison ivy or poison oak, so consider wearing pants. Agree that you should wear shoes/boots with good traction... I took a complete fall when stepping on a wooden step near the beginning. We saw a baby bear cross our path about 1/2 way point.

Idk what trail the other reviews were on but this one is well marked and zero bushwhacking. Once you get down to the river the trail splits off to the left to continue on to the falls. It’s approximately 5 miles round trip. Don’t let the other reviews scare you off. This is an awesome trail!

It’s a good trail, but very overgrown with poison ivy. NOT FOR BIKING. Shoes with excellent traction strongly recommended. Nice beach to camp by, and the river is great for kayaking! Again, just pretty overgrown everywhere.

muddy from all the rain and lots of obstacles, but well worth it for an cool dip in the river and the falls were very pretty. we went with 7 kids ranging 4 - 12, which made it much more challenging, but they enjoyed it!

A couple small trees blown over and a few muddy crossings. Overall very nice hike. Easy traverse to the beach where we hung out and ate lunch for a couple hours. The hike back was quite a bit harder because it was uphill. We did the hike with my 4 and 6 year old. I took turns carrying them on my back most of the uphill part back. The beach area was awesome, we were pressed for time so we didn’t see the falls. Next time I guess.

This hike was a last minute choice and it was awesome. Easy drive from Atlanta. It is 2 miles downhill to the river and then you hike about a third of a mile further to the falls, which are spectacular. When we returned to the river we took off our boots and enjoyed lunch on the sandy beach with our feet in the water. Yes it’s uphill back to your car but as uphills go it’s an easy one. This is going to be a favorite we return to often, and I’d love to camp overnight there. Lots of wildflowers which is an added perk.
