  • ENP 6.7 Great Smoky Mountains: Mountain Magic - Hiking Every Trail
    06/19/2018
     Bryan and Danielle speak with Liz Etnier, who became passionate about hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains at age 58. With 800 miles of trails, she set out a goal to hike every trail in the park before her 60th birthday. Her book, the Day Hiker’s Guide to all the Trails in the Smoky Mountains, has resulted from her hours of planning, and from the subsequent urging by her hiking friends to write it all down.
