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 Dyer Gap on FS 64 south to the headwaters of the Jacks River near Flat Top Mountain in the Cohuttas for a special hike
Moderately strenuous 4.8 miles round-trip. Elevation gain is: 900’. Since social distancing is essential, it’s the perfect time to hike a section of the BMT as a “moving meditation.” We will be spaced further apart and walking independently at times. At our destination, we will have plenty of time for snacks and a rest. We will enjoy a short “Forest Bathing” meditation before returning to the trailhead. Limited to 5 people.
