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.
Fontana Dam Area
BMT/AT divergence near the end of Fontana Dam to same on the south side near the Marina. Easy three miles. Could be done as a shuttle or start at multiple accessible points and done as round trips of up to six miles. Parking is abundant, great views of the lake and possibly a visit to the Dam’s Visitor center.
