Beautiful hike with stunning views. Be very careful not to miss the hard left turn in the beginning of the hike. We didn’t realize that two yellow markers indicated a turn and continued straight instead. We ended up basically rock climbing straight up the mountain until we ran into the trail at the top. The way back down was well marked and a great hike. We met up with several other people who missed the initial turn like us and got lost in the woods. Worth the trouble though and no trouble at all if you stay on trail.

We found the tucked away trailhead off of turtle pond rd. The one lane road led to a very small parking area. We were pleasantly surprised with the trail. It did combine with the Bartram Trail at the summit of Scaly man. Beautiful views and a great hike.

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.
