  • Description
  • Reviews
Jim Parham recommends 60 hikes to over 200 waterfalls in this hiking guide, which covers cascades—from famous, to obscure and remote—in wilderness areas, national forests, state parks, land trusts, and wildlife management areas. Routes range from easy strolls to 12 rugged miles, and each entry includes complete driving and hiking directions, distance and estimated hiking time, maps and elevation profile, trailhead GPS coordinates, and a description and photograph of each waterfall.
I suspect there are at least 25 waterfall guidebooks for this general region: Western North Carolina, East Tennessee, northwestern South Carolina, and north Georgia. Do we need another one? The answer is: Yes, we do, if it's a good one like Jim Parham's recently published Waterfall Hikes of North Georgia. Parham's book isn't just good. In regard to basic content—driving and hiking directions, general and specific maps, elevation profiles and trailhead GPS coordinates, and waterfall photos—it's really good. And in regard to trail-waterfall descriptions, it's excellent. The prose is crisp and lively. Parham has an eye for details and a gift for describing what he sees in a concise manner. He also has a nice sense of the tensions that exist where the natural world and recent human activities intersect along old rail beds, at former CCC camps, and similar locations.

—George Ellison, author of Blue Ridge Nature Journal

The pefect book if you appreciate waterfalls as resting places along your hike!
