Explore this forest through walking trails, bird-watching, educational kiosks, a pavilion and a garden.

Bartram allows visitors not only places to relax and take in the scenery, but also shows visitors the natural wildlife and wetlands through three looping hiking trails. The trails are perfect for biking, but they are also perfect for a nice run or walk. Grab a friend and bring your dog for a fun day exploring the trails.

For those of us who enjoy outdoor activity, Bartram’s latest unveiling is good news. Recently, Bartram unveiled a brand new trail for cyclists in the Baldwin area, enhancing the growing biking community we have here. Beyond growing Baldwin’s own biking community, the trails at Bartram are attracting cyclists from all around Georgia. With so much land to explore, the 11 mile single track trails are the best way to see all of Bartram’s beauty.

In 1794, the Bartram Forest was inhabited by Native Americans.  Today, educational hiking trails allow visitors to see centuries of abundant wildlife, natural wetlands, and an erosion ravine with soil that is a remnant of the ancient shallow seas that covered Georgia 50 to 100 million years ago.  Three looping trails cover this natural wonder.

Bartram Forest Wildlife Management Area is a 1,343-acre property provides archery hunting opportunities for deer, turkey and small game. Gates may be opened or closed at the discretion of the Georgia Forestry Commission. No camping allowed on the WMA.
