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.

Waucheesi Creek

Waucheesi Creek. Moderate 6.7 miles, but with 11 stream crossings. We will leave vehicles at the Bald River Road trailhead near the Holly Flats CG, then a long shuttle to Sandy Gap on the BMT. We will hike mainly downhill to the lower trailhead. At about mile 3 we reach the first stream crossing on Waucheesi Creek, then cross this creek and Kirkland Creek. The last crossing is across the Bald River. Come prepared with water shoes, extra socks and a towel. We will eat lunch at the first stream crossing. Long shuttle back to our vehicles.

Contact Hike leaders Rick and Brenda Harris at or text 513-260-1184 if you plan to attend.
