Very nice 9 mile "out and back" hike via the Bartram Trail to Rabun Bald, the second highest spot in Georgia at 4695 feet.
This hike had a nice east grade to the peak and observation tower than the trail on the opposite side of the mountain.
In this area we had flaming azalea and rhododendren blooming.

This was a sweet hike across 2 mountains to get to an old fire tower on Rabun Bald, which had spectacular views.
