Great Smoky Mountains National Park will be hosting author Danielle “Danny” Bernstein next Tuesday, July 7, at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, near the Cherokee, NC entrance.
Bernstein has authored two books in recent years, including Hiking the Carolina Mountains, which she published in 2007.
Her most recent guide, Hiking North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Heritage, was published earlier this year. The book covers 66 of the best day hikes in the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, an area which roughly encompasses the triangle from Pilot Mountain State Park to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and down to Highlands on the Georgia border. The area was recently designated by Congress for its natural, cultural, historical and recreation attributes within the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains.
Bernstein will sign books and talk about hiking on the front porch of the visitor center from 10 a.m. until 1 pm.
