Hiking Gear Store

Sunday, July 20, 2008

If you've been over to the HikingintheSmokys.com website in the last couple of days you may have noticed the addition of the new hiking store. Although all of the products on the site are currently available for purchase at this point, we are still in the process of building the store and fine-tuning the design. The intention of the store is to offer top quality hiking gear and apparrel, as well as books and DVDs related to the Smoky Mountains.

Any feedback about the store is welcome. Are there any hiking related items or brands that you would like to see? Are there any other categories of Smoky Mountain related books that we should add to the site? Is the navigation of the site easy to follow?

Please feel free to leave a post on this blog or you can email me at info@hikinginthesmokys.com.

Hi Jeff --

I can recommend an excellent book on hiking in GSMNP: The Day Hiker's Guide To All The Trails In The Smoky Mountains by Elizabeth L. Etnier. The author lives in Knoxville TN. This book is being used to set a hiking schedule for the GSMNP 75th Anniversary and it is being used by many hikers (including me) who are aspiring to become members of the 900-Miler Club.

A second book I highly recommend is Hiking The Carolina Mountains by Danny Bernstein. The author lives in Asheville. Although this book does not concentrate solely on the Park, she includes some select hikes on the NC side and she placed an emphasis on history. Danny has a second book coming out in the spring of 2009.
