Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Outdoors specialist Joe Miller has been writing about the North Carolina wilderness for over 15 years, but this is his first book. Apparently, the Raleigh News & Observer has been squirreling away his best tips, because 100 Classic Hikes in North Carolina is a veritable treasury of carefully researched routes throughout the state. This backpacker's friend covers hikes on the coast, in the Piedmont, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Pigsah National Park, and the Great Smoky Mountains. This handy guide features full-color topographical maps, elevation profiles, a Trails-at-a-Glance chart, and over 100 photos.
