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.

BMT Ocoee Whitewater Center

EASY hike. Meet at the Ocoee Whitewater Center to watch the water release “arrive” and learn about the river preparations for the 1996 Olympic Kayak and Canoe Competitions.  After the special at the bridge we will travel to the Thunder Rock parking lot then shuttle to the top of the mountain and hike back to the parking lot, 95 percent of the hike is downhill.  Perhaps we’ll see the rhododendron in bloom, perhaps we’ll find the wild raspberries ripe! Hike Leaders Ed and Clare Sullivan.
