Waterfalls are magical places - places of solitude, of serenity, of subtle power. Surrounding these swirling drops you'll find lush summer oaks, resplendent autumn colors, shiny winter icicles, and abundant spring wildflowers. The thoroughly revised third edition of Waterfalls of the Blue Ridge shows you where to find these enchanting jewels. From the Smokies to Shenandoah National Park, follow the authors as they guide you to nearly 100 of the best waterfalls in the Blue Ridge. Some are a stone's throw from the road; others hide in the backcountry. Directions, hike distance and difficulty, and a brief history of the area accompanies each description. So get out of your chair and into the woods. And don't forget your camera; you'll want to capture the elusive beauty found at Waterfalls of the Blue Ridge.
