This hike is a small portion of the Bartram Trail starting from Osage Mountain Overlook and ending on the summit of Scaly Mountain. Unfortunately, the dense fog didn't lift by the time I reached the summit and so, for me, there were no views, hence the four instead of five star rating. I'm sure the views are beautiful and will return to see them. The trail itself is in good shape here. Very few roots, although there are some extremely rocky sections.

Really loved this hike - came up for the solar eclipse! If you are going to look this up on Google, the trailhead starts with Bartram Trail on Highlands, NC and connects further up.

Great trail! Hiked this with a few young kids and they did great! I only wish there was a bathroom of some sort at the beginning.
