Overview

Offering the most comprehensive and definitive guide to the tallest mountains in the East, professional travel writer Jim Hargan is your resident guide to the hills and back roads of the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains region of North Carolina and Tennessee.

Hargan has expanded this edition with information on sightseeing-including whitewater rivers, lake recreation, and historic railroads. He guides you on all five of the region's long-distance footpaths and gives detailed instruction on how to enjoy these routes as scenic loops.

Ever enthusiastic, Hargan takes you to the best sources of local produce, crafts, and music, and leads you to the region's many historic homes and museums. He recommends scenic drives along the Parkway and such outdoor activities as gentle mountain walks, rafting, or hiking the Appalachian Trail.

As with every Explorer's Guide, helpful features include opinionated lodging reviews, from B&Bs, camps, and vacation cottages to pampering hotels. Handy icons direct you to family-friendly spots, destinations of good value, and wheelchair-accessible locations. You'll find hundreds of dining reviews, from barbeque to four-star cuisine. The list of attractions on and off the beaten track will keep you coming back for more.
