This summer I will be hiking the Bartrum Trail in N.C.(from G.A. border to Buckeye Creek) with my husband and daughters. We have what seems like a really good map, but I am curious as to how well the trail is marked. Thanks!

If you have the map, I'm assuming you've been to the trail's official site, right?

Also, if you go to TrailJournals.com, a few people have hiked the whole trail and posted journals. Here are some from 2007.[br][/br]

Thanks Tom, yes I have checked out the official web site as well as a few others. Unless I'm missing something, none say how well the trail is marked. The guide I have suggests that there are a few areas where it isn't marked well, so I just wanted to see if anyone on Trailspace has hiked it. I trust the opinions you guys give and respect the amount of experience that you have.
