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.

Wildflower Stroll and a picnic lunch at Mulky Gap.
April 29, 2020
The first stop on our itinerary is just across from the trailhead where you’ll see huge gardens of the delicate Pink Lady Slipper Orchids. We’ll then depart from the trailhead in the opposite direction for a leisurely stroll among Trillium, Wild Geranium, Wild Iris and Showy Orchis — just a few of the spring beauties to be seen. After lunch in a forest clearing, we’ll return via the Duncan Ridge Trail to pass by vibrant Flame Azaleas as well as some huge Pink Lady Slippers. Note: If there is sufficient interest, we may have two hikes, one mid-morning and another early afternoon. Hike leader Joy Forehand. For further information, contact email@example.com.
