Veteran nature writer Johnny Molloy welcomes you to enjoy these beautiful and often surprising wild areas, guiding you safely there and back again. Molloy renders the sometimes primitive trails accessible to both beginner and more intrepid hikers, from families with small children to dedicated wilderness wanderers. Spotlighting the best hikes in all four of North Carolina's national forests--Nantahala, Pisgah, Uwharrie, and Croatan, ranging from the mountains to the coast--this book includes some of the state's most heralded destinations and invites you to explore many lesser-known gems. Features include * A hike summary, including distance, time, and difficulty of each trip * Detailed instructions to keep you on the trail * GPS coordinates of every trailhead, a narrative of the hike, and can't-miss features * A cultural and natural history of each area * Best seasons to go * Fees and permits, as well as contact information for each area * Photos and maps to orient you
