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.

Clean Trail Day

Our volunteers once again will be staffing BMTA’s event tents at Fall Banch Falls and the Suspension Bridge for Clean Trails Day.

Should be great fall weather for hiking so plan on taking a hike and stop by our tent to say “Hi”!

The focus of this event is to spread the word about the Benton MacKaye Trail (BMT) and to emphasize the importance of the Leave No Trace precepts.
