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.

Beech Gap to Bob Bald

Beech Gap to Bob Bald. Moderately/strenuous 7 miles round trip with 900′ climb. We will park at the state line at Beech Gap on the Skyway. The first 2 miles are on an old FS road with only minimal climbing. When we reach the end of the road, we will head up the BMT to Bob Bald, a climb of 900′ and quite steep in places. Once we reach the top, we will enjoy the views and eat lunch, then head back to Beech Gap on the Skyway.
