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.
Gahuti Backcountry Trail at Fort Mountain State Park
Strenuous 8.2 miles. This trail travels around the edge of the park and passes below the summits of both Cohutta and Fort Mountains down to the lake and back to Cool Springs Overlook. The distance and elevation changes make this hike strenuous. Along the way you will see many views which are not visible during the summer months. Hike leader Mike Pilvinsky.
