“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
