Carolina Mountain Club - One Hundred Years by Danny Bernstein

Carolina Mountain Club, the oldest hiking and trail maintaining club in the South, celebrates one hundred years in 2023. Through the voices of its passionate members, discover the story of hiking, trail maintenance, and land protection in western North Carolina. In the 1920s and 1930s, the club built much of the Appalachian Trail in the South. Later it established the Art Loeb Trail through Pisgah National Forest. CMC created the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in the North Carolina mountains, protected Max Patch from development, spoke out against building the North Shore Road through the most pristine section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and currently participates in the Pisgah-Nantahala Forest plan.

Author Danny Bernstein is a hiker, hike leader, and outdoor writer. An A.T. 2000-miler and enthusiastic CMC member, she leads hikes in the Carolina mountains and writes about the outdoors from her home in Asheville, North Carolina.
