Explore the Bartram Trail
Take a 4.6-mile hike to a spectacular view along the Bartram Trail near Highlands 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23.
This lightly trafficked section of trail includes Jones Knob and Whiterock Mountain, a pair of peaks that lie along this rather tame stretch of the Bartram Trail. Both are well below 5,000 feet in elevation, and what sets them apart is that they are plutons — mountains comprised of erosion-resistant rock sporting massive, open cliff faces.
The trail is rated moderate, with 940 feet of elevation change. Leashed dogs are welcome. Organized by MountainTrue and free with registration at mountaintrue.org/event.
