More than 200 years ago, when the American Colonies were
waging a war for independence against Britian, William Bartram,
a Quaker, made an epic journey through the Southeast. Born
in Philadelphia, Bartram was to become American's first native-born
naturalist/artist. Commemorating Bartram's journey through the Tuskegee
area, the scenic Bartram Trail is the first trail in Alabama
to be disignated as A National Recreation 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 U.S. 29 and believed to be the site of an early Indian
community recorded in Bartram's journals - to wire road.
