Links to information and maps of the eastern mountain areas.
The purpose of this page is to give you info that is not immediately available. I have spent many hours perusing these sites and found them to be some of the most helpful information sites for roaming the mountains. You will find others, but I'm sure you'll find most of what you need right here.
Printed Maps and Gazetteers - Amazingly detailed, large-format topographic & street map atlases of all 50 U.S. states. Unbeatable recreational information & detail. Most states just $19.95!
Kevin Adams Books - Nature and Photography Books
N.C. Waterfalls - One of my favorite sites for info. The author has a lot of pertinent information to get you to your destination safely and with some foreknowledge of the area. Thanks to Rich Stevenson for maintaining this wonderful site.
Appalachian Treks - Another very good and informative website, with a lot of photos and info about the mountains, trails, and sights, along with a bit of philosophizing, poetry and quotes from some famous folk.
N.C. Waterfalls Map - No connection with the first link, but additional info. This is a google map and is sort of slow to load, but I think you will find it of value.
Waterfalls in the Smokys - part of a website called "Smokies Adventure" also has links to interactive maps and trails as well. Lots of info here.
Eastern Waterfall Database - Not so complete as the title might suggest, however, a site, not without merit. You won't find everything in one place, so look here too.
S.C. Waterfalls - Contains a list of N.C. and S.C. waterfalls as well as a lot of links to state and local parks and other info. Photography is not great but you will find more info here as well.
North Georgia Waterfalls - Jack Anthony Photography with lots of photos and info
Tennessee Landforms - A veritable plethora of information regarding Tenessee landforms and mapping.
Swimming Holes - A simple page with a ton of info about creeks, rivers, waterfalls, swimmin' holes and the like, for the whole U.S. of A.

N.C. Department of Transportation - State and county maps and road information.
W.V. Department of Transportation - State and county maps and road information.
Virginia Dept. of Transportation - State and county maps and road information. O.K. This website is not up to the same caliber as the above DOT's, so here are two links to maps in PDF (printable) and interactive (OTIM Online Transportation Information Map). You may need them both.
