Summary
Hiking Trails of the Great Smoky Mountains is an essential guide to one of America's most breathtaking and rugged national parks. The second edition of this compellingly readable and useful book is completely updated, giving outdoor enthusiasts the most current information they need to explore this world-renowned wilderness. Included here are facts on more than 125 official trails recognized by the Park Service. Each one has its own setting, purpose, style, and theme, and author Kenneth Wise describes them in rich and vivid detail. For every route, he includes a set of driving directions to the trailhead, major points of interest, a schedule of distances to each one, a comprehensive outline of the trail's course, specifics about where it begins and ends, references to the U.S. Geological Survey's quadrangle maps, and, when available, historical anecdotes relating to the trail. His colorful descriptions of the area's awe-inspiring beauty are sure to captivate even armchair travelers. Organized by sections that roughly correspond to the seventeen major watersheds in the Smokies, Wise starts in Tennessee and moves south into North Carolina, with two major trails--the Lakeshore and the Appalachian--that traverse several watersheds treated independently. Further enhancing the utility of this volume is the inclusion of the Great Smoky Mountains' official trail map as well as an informative introduction filled with details about the geology, climate, vegetation, wildlife, human history, and environmental concerns of the region. A seasoned outdoorsman with more than thirty years of experience in the area and codirector of the Great Smoky Mountains Regional Project at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Wise brings an exceptional depth of knowledge to this guide. Both experienced hikers and novices will find this newly revised edition an invaluable resource for trekking in the splendor of the Smokies. In addition to being codirector of the Great Smoky Mountains Regional Project, Kenneth Wise is associate professor at UTK's John C. Hodges Library, coeditor of Terra Incognita: An Annotated Bibliography of the Great Smoky Mountains, 1544--1934, and coauthor of A Natural History of Mount Le Conte
