BMT Northern Terminus Officially Changed
via WhiteBlaze - Appalachian Trail by SGT Rock

This year the BMTA voted to change the northern terminus of the BMT to the bridge over Big Creek at the Big Creek recreation area and the start of the Baxter Creek Trail. They did this based on feedback from thru-hikers that felt that this is really where the "trail" ended. The new recommended route to connect the BMT with the AT is the Chestnut Branch Trail. The 2012 Databook, my guide, and the up coming Smokies section guide for the BMT will all reflect the change.
