Danny Bernstein’s book, The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina, published by the History Press, focuses on the beauty, quirkiness, and vibrancy of the 1,000 miles from Clingmans Dome in the Smokies to the Outer Banks. Danny recounts the highlights and challenges of walking the MST. Meeting people is a vital part of walking the trail. Danny’s talk will center on the history found on the trail.
A committed hiker for over 40 years, Danny completed all the trails in Great Smoky Mountains, the Appalachian Trail, National Park, the South beyond 6000, many other hiking challenges, and, of course, the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Recently she walked the 440 miles of Le Chemin de St. Jacques, the French section of the El Camino .
There will be time to ask questions and for book-signing. Please join us for this entertaining and leisurely walk through the natural and cultural history of the Mountain-to-Sea Trail.
Danny Bernstein’s book begins, “I decided to walk the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MST) across North Carolina to really see my state.” . . .”The MST stretches for one thousand miles across a diverse landscape connecting the mountains to the Atlantic Ocean. It seemed the perfect way for me to understand North Carolina wildness, culture and history.”
