Day Hiking the North Georgia Mountains by Jim Parham Paperback . Many of the hikes in this book are acceptable for family hikes being less than one mile to about two miles

Only 14 left in stock (more on the way). Along the way, he discusses the human and natural history, wildlife, and geography of the region. Hikers of all ability levels will find waterfall walks to suit their style. Many of the hikes in this book are acceptable for family hikes being less than one mile to about two miles. Also for hikers of my age, a short hike to a beautiful waterfall is a welcome excursion. The written directions and accompanying maps are excellent guides.

The hikes are pretty evenly distributed geographically across north Georgia from Cloudland Canyon in the . Overall, this guide features the best trails of the north Georgia mountains, which in turn offer the best hiking in the state.

The hikes are pretty evenly distributed geographically across north Georgia from Cloudland Canyon in the west to the Cohutta River in the east. If you are in the north Georgia mountains, you will find a hike to fit your desires here. It is hard to find a major weakness with this guide. Johnny Molloy is an excellent and well-known author. If you insist on a guide that covers the entire state, then you should purchase "Hiking Georgia" by Pfitzer in addition to this guide. However, for the region covered, you will get far more out of this guide than you will Pfitzer's.

And the best thing is that Homan's book, though somewhat reorganized and expanded since 1987, is still accurate and informative about the trails, fauna, and flora you'll expect to see on each trail, not to mention accurate descriptions and directions to trailheads and markers. Great book, and great service to hikers, whether day-trippers or overnighters.

Tim Homan defined hiking in north Georgia. His trail descriptions and mileage are accepted as the most accurate. I've looked at many trails books for North Georgia and this is continually one of the best. The directions to the trailheads are right on the money. The first time I met Tim he was walking a trail with a wheel, measuring the distance. That was almost 15 years ago. In fact, Tim wrote the National Forest brochure trail descriptions. That brings me to the only problem with this book. Its title should be "Hiking Trails of the National Forest" since he rarely strays outside of its management area. Small enough for packing too!

Moss-covered boulders line the cool, rolling waters of a trout stream cutting swiftly through a dense backwoods forest. Sunshine streams through the mixed pine and deciduous tree canopy, illuminating a carpet of brilliant green fern below. Birds of prey soar in rising uplifts, hugging the rugged peaks of a craggy mountain summit slicing through the horizon.

The author is excellent at describing the trails, but I wish each trail had it's own reference map. I thought I had read this book before and it did, but maybe it was an earlier edition or a different book. I like having a map with way points and mile markers. Still, this is a good book to use as far as general trail research and hike planning.

While it's nice to know that this book covers many miles of trails (532 miles--it's in the preface), it is not very important. I agree with the other reviewers' comments on the "drawn while waiting for the light to turn green" maps; they hurt the book. My only other gripe is that, intentionally or not, the book is geared to folks who know where the hike "areas" are located. The book is organized by hiking area. I didn't don't know the areas, and so it is that I appreciate the approach in "50 Hikes in the North Georgia Mountains," by Johnny Molloy. His table of contents identifies the city closest to the hike, a big help for me. If, for example, you know the location of the Tray Mountain Area, you won't need to google-map as much as I did to plan my vacation. The two books complement each other.

Have used the 1987 edition hiking with my family since the book came out. Recorded notes right in the book on what my daughters and son said and did on each hike. So when my son-in-law started taking my granddaughter on hikes and overnighting on trails, I bought the new edition, wrote in all my notes on what my granddaughter's mother, aunt, uncle and grandmom had said and done 25 years ago on those trails, and gave it to her dad for Christmas. BIG HIT! And the best thing is that Homan's book, though somewhat reorganized and expanded since 1987, is still accurate and informative about the trails, fauna, and flora you'll expect to see on each trail, not to mention accurate descriptions and directions to trailheads and markers. Great book, and great service to hikers, whether day-trippers or overnighters. HIGHLY recommend this guide!
