1,100 Miles, 78 Days, Two Pairs of Boots...

Hiking the Florida Trail
... and One Heck of an Adventure

It all started on a backpacking foray into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. That first trip, though a disaster, unleashed an innate love of the outdoors that has led to Johnny Molloy spending over 100 nights in the wild per year, over the past 20 years, backpacking and canoe camping throughout our country and abroad.

He has written 30 books; "Hiking the Florida Trail" is his latest offering. This is the first narrative account of a Florida Trail thru-hike, and is peppered with outrageous and charming characters. Molloy's peanut butter thermometer and his "Five Foot Radius Theory of Camping" for tired hikers will make experienced backpackers smile knowingly. Novice hikers will find his insider tips priceless.

So, start the adventure; plan your own short hike, thru-hike, or simply join Molloy without leaving the comfort of your armchair.
