Day and Overnight Hikes: Kentucky's Sheltowee Trace
Johnny Molloy


   The master path of the great Bluegrass State, the Sheltowee Trace graces 282 miles of Kentucky hills and hollows. This path was the 100th designated federal national recreation trail and is named in honor of Daniel Boone. Sheltowee, meaning Big Turtle, was the name given to Boone when he was adopted into the Shawnee tribe as the son of the great war chief, Blackfish. While being pursued by the Shawnee, Boone hid beneath the waters of a creek, breathing through a reed "straw," thus earning his nickname. Hikers who tread this trail will be "following the turtle," a white turtle blazed on trees, from the trail's southern terminus in Tennessee's Pickett State Park, north through the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. The trail continues through the length of the Daniel Boone National Forest nearly to the state of Ohio.

    Complete with detailed maps, elevation profiles, and detailed descriptions of the trail, author Johnny Molloy's Day & Overnight Hikes: Kentucky's Sheltowee Trace is the ultimate resource for all levels of hikers. Each day and overnight hike described provides valuable information such as trail length, condition, difficulty, and clear directions to the trailhead. Whether it's a day hike along the Cumberland River, an overnight trip in the Daniel Boone National Forest, or an all-out assault on the entire 282 miles, all hikers will need and appreciate the first-hand information gathered and presented by Molloy.

Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail: South
Johnny Molloy


Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail: South is important since it takes readers directly to the best experiences to be had on the Appalachian Trail in highland Dixie. The book details 45 hikes along the AT, from the trail’s southern terminus atop Springer Mountain in Georgia north through North Carolina and Tennessee, into Virginia to the Maryland state line. It helps hikers experience those special moments in special places on the Appalachian Trail, whether it is hiking to overlooks, waterfalls and wildernesses, as well as scenic, cultural and historical sites, even trail towns.

Readers can experience adventures stretched out along the spine of the Southern Appalachians. Georgia’s Blood Mountain proudly displays gardens of mountain laurel while deep woodlands of birch and rhododendron rise astride Long Creek. In North Carolina, the open meadows of Siler Bald contrast with the lush forests of Standing Indian Mountain. In Tennessee, the spruce-fir evergreens on Roan Mountain juxtapose with the great oak woodlands found on the shores of Watauga Lake. In Virginia, fern gardens line the AT on the slopes of Stony Man Mountain while wind stunted pine ridges flank the path near the Dragons Tooth. In this varied terrain and habitat, we follow the AT to our hiking destinations.

Using veteran outdoor writer Johnny Molloy’s three decades of experience exploring the Southern Appalachians, this book is a true compilation of the best hikes on the Appalachian Trail in the South, and adds value to the book.
