William Bartram Trail

The William Bartram Trail celebrates the life and writings of William Bartram, noted botanist who explored the Southeast in the years 1773-1776. The trail approximates his route through North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana. Citizen groups have tried to keep the trail marked on some of its 220 miles. Unfortunately, the trail is only partially maintained. In the area around Augusta, the trail is repeatedly bisected by modern obstructions. Nevertheless, this portion makes for a great stroll.


  1. It does look like a great place for a walk! Nice photo.

  2. This is such a beautiful view, the contrast of the bare trees with the blue sky, the blue waters, and the bridge accentuating the trail...what a wonderful site! I just love this. This should be a greeting card. Welcome to Georgia...
