Bartram & Foothills Trail 2019 BLOG

These two trails make a nice semi loop in the Southern Appalachian Mountains totaling roughly 200 miles. If you have the time it’s worth doing both trails at once in early to mid-spring or late fall.  The Bartram Trail could be overgrown midsummer. We timed our trip to coincide with the Oconee Bells wildflower which is locally abundant along portions of the Foothills Trail.

Bartram Trail: Cheoah Bald to Franklin, TN

Bartram Trail to the Foothills Trail: Franklin to Cashiers

Foothills Trail: to Table Rock
