Excellent trail. Easy walking and well maintained. Trail east of the Ranger Station alternatingly passes through hardwood full canopy bottoms and pine uplands. The last two miles before the eastern end of the trail at Highway 29 pass through some native and planted longleaf pine in the pine uplands - one of the few places in central Alabama where you can see a section of 30-40 year old longleaf pine - for longleaf devotees, that two mile section is worth the trip. It appears that the Forest Service started planting longleaf exclusively here in place of loblolly at least 20+ years ago. Parking area is close to the Ranger Station and appears to be safe place to leave a vehicle. We parked at the ranger station and walked out and back both ways on the Bartram trail. Friendly forest ranger willing to give us a good description of forestry practices on the site. Forest Service Roads crisscross everywhere on this site.
Nice trails for hiking and biking. Trails are marked very well. Plenty of streams for water if needed. Good trails for kids too.
Very nice and accessible trail. A bit overgrown in spots and tending to sandiness. Overall a good experience.
