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.
