Most hikers know that western North Carolina is a superb hiking destination. In her second hiking guidebook, Danny Bernstein covers 66 of the best hikes in the North Carolina Blue Ridge, woven through with historical anecdotes to deepen a hiker's understanding of the region. From Stone Mountain's roots of moonshining and NASCAR to the mystery of Rumbling Bald, used as the basis for Jules Verne's 1904 novel, Master of the World, nearly every hike has its own story to tell. Each entry includes clear maps, complete directions, hiking distance, trail highlights, elevation gain, related books and movies, photos, and much more.

Danny Bernstein's Hiking North Carolina's Blue Ridge Heritage introduces you to the best of western North Carolina's spectacular hiking trails, and gives you something extra: an inside look at the heritage behind the trails that even long-time residents and experienced hikers may not know. With Danny's book, your hike will be more than just a walk in the woods-- you'll develop an even greater appreciation for these wonderful mountains. ----Penn Dameron, Executive Director, Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.
In addition to providing essential trail logistics for each day hike, this book is a "trail compendium" that deftly assimilates into each description aspects regarding geology, geography, natural areas, flora, fauna, and human history, not excluding the region's literary and cinematic heritage. It's a guide for the twenty-first century adventurer. ----George Ellison, author of Blue Ridge Nature Journal
