Hiking guidebook author to give presentation

Monday, February 9, 2009

Danny Bernstein, an avid hiker and author of “Hiking the Carolina Mountains”, will be giving a presentation and slide show in the Kaplan Auditorium of the Henderson County Public Library on February 19 at 4 p.m.

Bernstein has hiked the entire length of the Appalachian Trail, has reached the summit of every mountain higher than 6000 feet in elevation in the Southern Appalachians, and is currently working on becoming a member of the 900 Miler Club, reserved only for people who have hiked every trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Her book, Hiking the Carolina Mountains, is the definitive hiker's guide to the mountains of North and South Carolina. Published in April 2007, Hiking the Carolina Mountains takes you beyond the most well-known hikes in the region. This is the first hiking guidebook to include Dupont State Forest, Panthertown Valley near Cashiers, and the Green River Game Lands near Hendersonville in North Carolina. It also lists eight hikes in upstate South Carolina, an area largely undocumented in other guidebooks.

She’s currently in the process of finishing up her latest guide book, “Hiking North Carolina's Mountain Heritage,” which will be released in late March.

The program is free and open to the public. The library is located at 301 N Washington St in Hendersonville, NC. Please call 828-697-4725 for more information.
