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.

Synchronous Firefly Hike
Synchronous Firefly Hike. 1-2 miles, easy. Spend an evening watching synchronous fireflies in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park interpreted by naturalist Liz Domingue. These special fireflies light up in synchrony and are found only in the Smokies and in Thailand. The hike is recommended by members who have had this experience. This hike is limited to nine participants and the cost is $31.50 per person. Hikers need to bring a water bottle, yard chair and a flashlight with a red beam or one covered in red cellophane. Payment is due to the hike coordinator. Liz will even call for barred owls while you enjoy the light show. The hike probably will start in Gatlinburg.
