About Molloy, Johnny

Johnny Molloy is a writer and adventurer based in nearby Johnson City, Tennessee. His outdoor passion started on a backpacking trip in Great Smoky Mountains National Park while attending the University of Tennessee. That first foray unleashed love of the outdoors that has led Molloy to spending most of his time hiking, backpacking, canoe camping and tent camping for the past three decades. Friends enjoyed his outdoor adventure stories; one even suggested he write a book. He pursued his friend’s idea and soon parlayed his love of the outdoors into an occupation. The results of his efforts are over 60 books. His writings include hiking guidebooks, camping guidebooks, paddling guidebooks, comprehensive guidebooks about a specific area and true outdoor adventure books throughout the eastern United States, including hiking guides to North Carolina’s National Forests, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Triad and the Triangle.

Molloy writes for varied magazines, websites, and is a columnist/feature writer for his local paper, the Johnson City Press. He continues writing and traveling extensively throughout the United States, endeavoring in a variety of outdoor pursuits. His non-outdoor interests include American history and University of Tennessee sports. Molloy lives in Asheville, North Carolina. For the latest on Johnny, please visit www.johnnymolloy.com.
