Ascent Trip Report

At the end of the road at Beegum gap, there are what appears to be several driveways, but I learned later that some are roads. The trail to Rabun Bald dives off into some rhododendron. It joins the Bartram trail after about .2 miles. Hiked trail up to the platform at the top. Continued to Flat Top, Flint Knob East, and Flint Knob.
