New additions to

Friday, February 13, 2009

We have a couple of new additions to our website I’d like to share.

Appalachian Trail
The first is our new Appalachian Trail pages. The combined two pages offer detailed information on hiking the Appalachian Trail through the Smoky Mountains, including information on key points along the way, backcountry shelters, water sources, mileage data, an elevation profile, a brief history of the trail, as well as other key online resources. Please click here to visit the page.

Bicycling in the Smokies
We’ve also added a page that provides a list of suggested road cycling and mountain biking routes in the Great Smoky Mountains and in the immediate areas just outside of the national park. Please click here to visit the page.

Place Names in the Smoky Mountains
Finally, the last addition I wanted to let everyone know about is our new “Place Names in the Smoky Mountains” page. This is a list of more than 45 place names and regional terms to help explain the meaning and historical origins of some of the names and places in the Smokies that may have had you asking “where did that name come from?" or "what in the world does that mean?". Please click here to visit the page.

I would love to hear your feedback about any or all of these new additions. Particularly, do they provide useful information? Am I missing anything? Any recommendations on anything that I could add or change to strengthen the information would be greatly appreciated.
