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.

It will take all the GA and TN/NC volunteers BMTA can recruit to accomplish the herculean task of logging out/brushing out/refreshing blazes on this seven-mile section of the Sycamore Creek Trail.

There’s plenty of work and a job for everyone. Trail workers will enjoy the benefits of working on a beautiful section with great views (especially from Whigg Meadow). The day will conclude with Chow Time at the Sycamore Creek Trailhead, catered by Chef Patty.

What to Wear and Bring: Minimum 2 liters of water, long pants, boots, gloves and helmets available if needed. Please indicate if needed in the RSVP!
