Five-Star Trails: West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest
Johnny Molloy


Your Guide to the Area's Most Beautiful Hikes

A whopping 900,000 acres, the mighty Monongahela National Forest is the heart and soul of West Virginia and a natural getaway for hikers and weekend backpackers. Five-Star Trails: West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest leads hikers to classics, such as High Falls and Senaca Rocks, as well as such lesser-known but equally scenic hikes as Canyon Rim and Laurel Creek.

The 2nd edition of Five-Star Trails: West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest has been completely revised. Veteran author Johnny Molloy used his decades of exploring West Virginia's largest national forest to choose only the best hikes, covering the mosaic of experiences to be had in the "Mon"—whether to rocky overlooks, deep into untamed wildernesses, to backcountry waterfalls, even to botanically rare and rich parcels—special places one and all.

To this end, Molloy has completely rewritten the book, rehiking hikes from the previous edition and adding more than a dozen new hikes for this edition. All the maps and elevation profiles have been professionally redone, and new photographs have been taken. Together, these new elements have been fashioned into a guide worthy of West Virginia's fabulous national forest that is the Monongahela.

Paddling the Everglades Wilderness Waterway

Paddling the Everglades Wilderness Waterway
Holly Genzen and Anne McCrary Sullivan


The Everglades Wilderness Waterway winds an enthralling path through rivers, bays, and streams on the southwestern edge of Everglades National Park. Rich with wildlife and scenic beauty, it also poses many challenges for paddlers. Canoeists and kayakers must deal with wind, waves, limited campsites (in the form of “chickee” platforms over the water and historic groundsites), and no fresh water.

As veterans of this complex passage, authors Holly Genzen and Anne Sullivan turn those limitations into glorious, safe adventure. Some out-and-back paddles lead to the rivers and bays of the Everglades National Park’s interior; others wind to Gulf Coast sites; still others loop around islands, mangrove forests, or other natural phenomena. The authors provide marker-by-marker route descriptions (both north to south and south to north), and comprehensive information on safety, supplies, campsites, and navigation. They also chronicle the waterway’s wildlife, social history, and origin of place names encountered along the way.

Five-Star Trails: Raleigh and Durham
Joshua Kinser


Five-Star Trails: Raleigh/Durham is a guide to the best day-hiking trails within a two-hour drive of the urban areas of Raleigh and Durham. Raleigh is North Carolina’s capital and an anchor for the state's famous Research Triangle that includes Durham and Chapel Hill. Amid this metropolitan complex that also embraces Cary, Apex, and Wake Forest--home to more than 1.7 million people--the author leads readers to myriad places for scenic beauty, to sites of historic significance, and to neighborhoods that showcase the charms of urban life.

All of the routes stay true to the book's "Five-Star Trails" title, based on the book series' rating system for scenery, trail condition, suitability for children, difficulty level, and solitude. To be selected for the book, each trail must truly shine in one or more of those areas while, at the same time, all of the trails combine to offer diversity for a wide range of hikers. Thus, this is the guidebook for a hiker seeking an arduous climb to a scenic overlook as much as it is for a weekend walker who wants an easy trail for his or her family, as much as it is for another person who wants a peaceful walk on a well-groomed path.

While many hiking guides focus entirely and specifically on trails in wilderness areas, Five-Star Trails: Raleigh/Durham provides a sampler of the best that North Carolina's Triangle Area has to offer. Readers will encounter unique attractions as they walk through historic neighborhoods; alongside lakes, creeks, and rivers; and into botanical gardens, verdant forests, and expansive and pocket parks. Not overlooked are Durham’s Tobacco Warehouse District, Franklin Street and the University of Chapel Hill Campus, and intriguing trails that highlight this urban area's rich Native American, Civil War, and Frontiersman history.
