Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up Rabun Bald Trail at about 3 miles then hiked on Bartram Trail south for about 2.3 miles to Flat Top. Trail bypasses summit so just eyeballed the summit from trail...when trail started going down I left it and hiked maybe 200 feet to summit. The summit has heavy vegetation in the form of small trees and shrubs. The hike back to Rabun Bald was moderate and not too strenuous.
