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.

Lady Slipper Hike BMT at Weaver Creek in Blue Ridge

Moderate to strenuous 3.8 miles. This will be a SLOW, LEISURELY hike to enjoy the wildflowers. Initially we’ll pass by beautiful mountain laurel groves peppered with flame azaleas. Stop for a leisurely lunch at the water cutoff  beside some of the largest lady slippers on this section. As we stroll back to the trailhead, we’ll pass numerous gardens of the pink beauties. Hike Leaders Joy and Frank Forehand. For more information contact
