Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

This will be a moderate to strenuous hike traveling north to south along the Bartram Trail in the Chattahoochee National Forest. It will be a one way hike and will require a shuttle.


This hike will cross many streams as we start south with 15 bridges in the first 3 miles. The trail will ascend Rabun Bald (second highest point in Georgia with elevation of 4696 feet). We should expect an elevation gain of 1950 feet. This should be a scenic event with an observation tower atop Rabun Bald, with views of South Carolina, North Carolina and of course Georgia.

Plan on 7 hours of hiking and shuttling for this event.


We will meet at the Burger King in Clayton in the morning and we will the Burger King for the Trailheads at 8:30 AM sharp. Please arrive earlier for meeting and breakfast.
