More About the Author

Johnny Molloy is a self-employed outdoor writer based in Johnson City, Tennessee. A Christian -- member of First Presbyterian Church, native Tennessean and free-market capitalist, he was born in Memphis and moved to Knoxville in 1980 to attend the University of Tennessee. It was in Knoxville where he developed his love of the natural world that has since become the primary focus of his life.
It all started on a backpacking foray into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. That first trip, though a disaster, unleashed an innate love of the outdoors that has led to his averaging over 120 nights in the wild per year, over the past 25 years, backpacking and canoe camping throughout our country. Specifically, he has spent over 750 nights in the Smokies alone, where he cultivated his woodsmanship and expertise on those lofty mountains.
In 1987, after graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Economics, he continued to spend an ever increasing time in the natural places, becoming more skilled in a variety of environments. Friends enjoyed his adventure stories, one even suggested he write a book. Soon he was parlaying his love of the outdoors into an occupation.
The results of his efforts are 45 books, including more in the works. Johnny also continually works on revising and updating his guides. Many are in their 4th or 5th edition. Molloy has also written numerous articles for magazines such as Backpacker and Sea Kayaker, and for Web sites, such as Away.com.
He also is a columnist and feature writer for his hometown newspaper, the Johnson City Press. He continues to write to this day and travel extensively to all four corners of the United States endeavoring in a variety of outdoor pursuits.

The maps are great and the elevation maps helpful.

We also had along "100 Hikes in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park" by R. Manning and found this book more useful for our needs.

I've purchased many things on Amazon yet this is my first review. I just got home from a three day hike (#36 Mt.Sterling Loop) and due to discrepancies in the book which put my husband and me in harm's way I felt compelled to write a review and let other's know where this guide falls short. First, please understand I am a detail-oriented planner and planned this trip months in advance.

Day one went very well. The descriptions and map are accurate. My husband did mention he wished it mentioned the fishing opportunities were better in the first 2 miles as approaching Mouse Creek Falls but that is not why I'm giving the book only two stars (it is just a personal preference as that was one goal of the trip).

Day two is where one must be cautious. The book indicates the 6 mile hike will only take four hours. I already knew by looking at the elevation map (and considering our pack load) we would probably need more time than that. So we made sure we left fairly early especially because there was impending weather. The map is mediocre and I soon realized I couldn't rely solely on this resource. I had also photocopied the description. There is a point in the description which indicates at the junction you only have .5 miles left to go. When you get to the "junction" the sign actually says 1.8 miles. A HARD 1.8 miles and therefore because of that we were hiking in the dark with bad weather moving in. We got to a second junction which was the actual junction. However because the book left out the first junction I felt it was misleading. There were some other "vague" descriptions for day two that had also put us behind schedule.

Just completed my first overnight hike - we did the Fontana Loop. This book was invaluable in planning our hike and understanding what we should look for. It made the hiking experience so much more enjoyable.

The maps are great and the elevation maps helpful. The descriptions and details ease the mind. Wouldn't consider hiking a trail in the Smokeys without it.

This book is very structured in its writing and content. The author appears to have hiked ALL of these trails and gives a "star" rating to five different aspects of each trail. The map diagrams are very clear. If you like hiking the Smokies then you'll love this book. I highly reccomend this book to beginners as well as old pros.

I realy am glad I bought this book. I already have 100 Hikes in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Second Edition and Hiking Trails of the Smokies. This book adds to the collection by giving different approaches to some major sites.

This is a pretty good book for those who are unfamiliar with the smoky mountains. I did not find it as helpful as I thought I would since I have hike many of the trails and was pretty familiar with the park. It has some great day hikes and a few over night hikes list in here. One nice thing is that it show the elevation change over the trail, which is great for figuring out how tough the trail will really be. Overall I found this book to help with planning some new day hike loops and over night hikes.

Outlines many different hikes in the GSM park area. It does a good job of letting you know just how strenuous (or not) a hike is. We have used this to plan several family trips. Great purchase

We used it to decide on hiking in the Smokie Mountains. It seemed to take out the crowded areas of the park which was wonderful.
