Johnson spoke to people of all hiking levels; his books & presentation both speak to lowering barriers to the awesome sport of hiking. His presentation followed trails that are mentioned in his new edition releases of and both of my bestselling Parkway trail guides—”Hiking the Blue Ridge Parkway” and “Best Easy Day Hikes Blue Ridge Parkway“.
Johnson also covered trails in his brand new book, just released, “Best Easy Day Hikes Great Smoky Mountains National Park” & his national bestseller, “Hiking North Carolina.”
All in all it was a great evening for the hiking community. Johnson answered questions & signed several books before heading back to his home in Banner Elk, NC.
