Eagle Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"For those looking for a kick-butt Smokies adventure, here’s your hike. Probably the most strenuous hike in this guidebook, with big elevation gains and enough creek wades to make your feet stay pruny for days. But the rewards go far beyond a good workout. The hike features just about everything the park is famous for: cascading streams, varied plant life, scenic views, and history. As if that weren’t enough, you get to take a boat ride across Fontana Lake.For camp reading, get a copy of Hazel Creek from Then till Now by Duane Oliver or Fontana, A Pocket History of Appalachia by Lance Holland, both available from park sales outlets."
