About the Author

Born in Tennessee, Johnny Molloy moved to Knoxville in 1980 to attend the university of Tennessee. The lure of nearby Smoky Mountain National Park was too hard to resist.

He has published several hiking guides to Virginia ,West Virginia, and Tennessee as well as tent camping guides to Florida and Colorado. The Mount Rogers Outdoor Recreation Guide is his eighth book

Read an Excerpt

What makes a trip to Energy Lake really special is the nearby Nature Station. It offers environmental education in an attractive setting. The Learning Center has exhibits on the wildlife of Land Between The Lakes. The backyard is home to native plants, and sometimes stray or injured animals that the Nature Station has taken in. There are also aquatic creatures in the turtle and fish ponds. Visitors can see a bald eagle, owls, bobcats, coyotes, deer, and more. Kids will have a great time at the center, and adults might learn a thing or two themselves.
Outside the Nature Station is another set of trails. The Center Furnace Trail explores the remnants of a great iron furnace and the history of the area's iron industry. The Hematite and Honker trails circle their namesake small lakes, offering the chance to spot waterfowl. You can also rent canoes to paddle Honker Lake. Grab your friends and family, and come enjoy the natural side of Land Between the Lakes at Energy Lake.
