Top Trails Great Smoky Mountains National Park from the Author: Johnny Molloy. Johnny Molloy, who has spent more than 800 nights backpacking in the Smokies, has updated his classic guideTop Trails: Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This revised edition has been completely updated, including the new backcountry reservation system implemented in the park. He has also added some excellent hikes, some of them well off the beaten path. For example, the hike to Baskins Creek Falls takes you past a pioneer homesite and to a scenic cascade overshadowed by more popular waterfalls nearby, making it an ideal destination for those who want to escape the crowds. Additionally, Johnny--who considers the Smokies his home stomping ground--makes sure that all the necessary information to help you execute a hike (from directions to maps) is correct. New photos add flair to the book.
