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.

60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Cincinnati, 2nd edition
Tammy York


Including Clifton Gorge, Southeast Indiana, and Northern Kentucky

60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Cincinnati by Tammy York is one book that covers the best and sometimes the least-well-known hiking destinations within 60 miles of the greater Cincinnati area. The hikes were selected based on family friendliness, scenery, and history.

Many of the hikes fall between 3 to 5 miles in length, which provides parents with a relaxing and revitalizing hike even little ones can enjoy. This isn’t a bunch of poppy-cock either. Author Tammy York hiked most of the trails with her two young daughters.

60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Cincinnati was created with other parents and newbie hikers in mind, while also providing challenging hikes for skilled hikers.

With this guide, hikers will discover many of the local hidden hiking treasures that are in or near Cincinnati. Places such as Caldwell Nature Preserve, Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary, and Quiet Trails Nature Preserve offer incredible views, ample wildlife and wildflowers, and a chance to get away from everything and enjoy the simple pleasure of nature.

Trails in the guide cover Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, and range from easy to you-must-be-joking difficult. For example, Sharon Woods is an easy and accessible paved trail for most of the hike, but Clifty Falls State Park hike will challenge your ability to concentrate on crossing slippery and tippy rocks without falling into the stream.
