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.

Enjoy snacks and drinks at the vehicles after the work trip!
We suggest those starting on the Reliance side eat at the Hiwassee Fly Shop. We hear their burgers are great!
Those starting at Coker Creek may want to eat in the Copperhill area — assuming those folks will have come from GA.
