BMTA ACTIVITY CALENDAR
BMTA normally schedules four or five hikes per month, some “leisure” hikes that are shorter and easier and some 5 to 8 miles and of moderate difficulty. In addition, we have occasional backpacking hikes and more difficult ones that might be called “hardy hikes.” Occasionally we co-sponsor hikes with other organizations. Some, but not all, of our hikes are “dog friendly.” Although more hikes are in Georgia than the other states, you will find hikes in all three BMT states: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
BMT/AT Loop from Big Stamp Parking Lot
4.6 miles, moderate. This loop hike includes 1.2 miles on the Appalachian Trail and 3.4 on the Benton MacKaye Trail as well as the southern termini of both trails and two great vistas, one on each trail.

BMTA members and guests must recognize there are risks and responsibilities involved and be willing to assume these risks. In order to participate, members and guests are required to sign a waiver of liability at the beginning of each BMTA event. If the parent does not accompany a minor, the disclaimer for minors must be signed in advance. If I bring a dog on a “dog friendly” hike, I accept sole responsibility for the behavior of my dog.
