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.

Smokies Chronicle from the Author: Ben Anderson. Since its creation in 1934, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has become the most heavily visited of all our national parks, with yearly visitation sometimes surpassing 10 million people. To many, the Smokies are among the loveliest and most interesting mountains anywhere, favored by a remarkable biodiversity owing mostly to copious precipitation, elevation variation, and remnants of the most recent ice age. In the park, one finds a variety of trees and plants similar to that of the entire 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail from north Georgia to central Maine. As the national park system celebrated its centennial in 2016, Ben Anderson decided to explore and closely observe, across the seasons, as much of the nation’s most popular national park as practicable during the year. On the three or four hikes he took each month, he revisited a number of trails he was familiar with from previous hiking and backpacking excursions, often through his role as a Smokies backcountry volunteer for more than 20 years. Even on familiar trails, he sought a greater perspective and deeper insight into the park. In Smokies Chronicle, Anderson offers observations on natural and human history, mountain culture, geography, geology, flora and fauna. The book also deftly blends the personal with the universal in a compelling mix of entries from the backcountry. Although this book can be used as a helpful trail guide, it also provides a fresh look and an engaging narrative about our most heavily visited national park, through the eyes and ears of a writer who has an extensive history with the park.
