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.
Yonah Mountain and return for a total of 5 miles
1,700’ gain as you literally “climb a mountain.” This shark fin-shaped mountain has a trail that is a combination of moderate with some steep and rocky sections. Excellent views but expect some icy spots in winter. Hike leader Steve Dennison. For more information, contact hikeleaderSD@bmtamail.org.
