Summary

Family Hiking in the Smokies is specifically geared toward taking children on excursions into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park-the most visited national park in the United States. The park offers much to its nearly ten million annual visitors. For families who seek fun along with educational recreation, the park boasts splendid views and enormous biological diversity.

Author Biography

Hal Hubbs, Charles Maynard, and David Morris have hiked together and with their families for many years. The three friends formed Panther Press, which originally published Waterfalls and Cascades of the Great Smoky Mountains, along with many other titles on natural history, particularly in the Smokies. Hal, Charles, and David have worked as volunteers in the Smokies and have hiked in many national parks throughout the country. But as long-time East Tennessee residents, they especially want families to enjoy the trails of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
