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 from Reliance, TN, to the Lost Creek Campground and back, 8 miles
This hike parallels the beautiful Big Lost Creek through a deep limestone gorge with rippling cascades and lovely waterfalls.The rating is moderate due to the length of the hike, only two hills. We’ll cross the cool creek to eat lunch at the campground. Water shoes are a must for three creek crossings both ways. We’ll return a slightly different trail with magnificent views of rock formations. There’s ice cream at the Hiwassee Outfitters store at the end of the hike. Hike Leader Clare Sullivan.
