Product Description

Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail: South guides hikers of all experience levels (including kids) through 45 day hikes on the Appalachian Trail, concentrated on the four southernmost states; Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. This illustrated paperback includes descriptions, photographs, and charts for each hike, as well as GPS-based trailhead coordinates, trail maps, and elevation profiles. In addition, hikers are provided trail ratings based on scenery, wildlife, seclusion, waterfalls, history, geology, wildflowers, difficulty, views, and accessibility for kids and dogs.

From the back cover:

“If you’re looking for the best day hikes on the Appalachian Trial in the South, look no further. You hold in your hands an exciting new guide to outdoor fun. These 45 hikes have been tested as suitable for families with young kids, veteran hikers, and everyone in between.

From the A.T.’s southern terminus atop Springer Mountain in Georgia, north through North Carolina and Tennessee, and on into Virginia to the Maryland state line, this carefully curated collection of short segments of America’s best-loved trail system offers a new approach to enjoying the granddaddy of America’s trails.

These best hikes on the Appalachian Trail will take you to overlooks, waterfalls, and backcountries, as well as scenic, cultural, and historical sites, and even trail towns. Some hikes exclusively use the A.T., while others, such as loop hikes, use the A.T. and other connecting paths to fashion a rewarding trek. And there are rewards aplenty, for the A.T. winds through an incredibly scenic land, a place where mountains tower thousands of feet above the fertile valleys, where cascades plunge into deep forests, and where picturesque rivers cut deep gorges through majestic highlands.”
