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.
Unicoi Gap on the Benton MacKaye Trail to the Doc Rogers Sanatorium
Strenuous nine miles, 1,000 ft elevation change, with a beautiful ridge line walk along the NC/TN state line. Added attractions include an old engraved stone marker on the ridge marking the state line and the ruins of the “old” Doc Rogers’ house. Meet up location is at the Coker Creek Welcome Center, TN.
