Commemorating Bartram's journey through the Tuskegee area, the scenic Bartram Trail is the first in Alabama to be designated as a National Recreational Trail. The trail runs through the Tuskegee National Forest for about eight and one half miles. Its route extends in a southwesterly direction from Alliance-located on US Hwy. #29 and believed to be the site of an early Indian community recorded in Bartram's journals- to Wire Rd.
The trail passes through various types of forest wildlife habitat. Hikers can see a wide variety of wild flowers and flowering trees, including dogwood and magnolias. With luck, hikers may also get fleeting glimpses of deer, turkey or other wildlife as they scurry through the forest.
Since the trail was designated specifically for hikers, there are narrow steps, small bridges and other structures unsuitable for vehicles and horses. This trail has primitive camping only.
Directions: From Tuskegee, To reach the north trailhead, travel on Hwy. #80/29 east, go past I-80 and the trailhead will be on the left.
