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.

Cruel Jewel Ultra Race

The Cruel Jewel Ultra Race. Racers will be on some BMTA Trails from Weaver Creek to Stanley Gap, the road section across the Iron Bridge, the trail between the Iron Bridge and Old Dial and then Old Dial all the way to Skeenah Gap. From the road crossing at Skeenah Gap, the course switches to the Duncan Ridge at the intersection at the top of Rhodes Mountain.

Please do not remove any flags/trail markers as doing so can endanger the runners. While this is not a BMTA sponsored event we appreciate the Leave No Trace policy that this race adheres to as well as the trail maintenance that they do.
