Hiking on Hazel Creek [videorecording] / with guide Lance Holland

Holland, Lance (Author). Ruehl, Ron (cinematographer). Lance Holland (Cast).


Hazel Creek has attained almost mythical status among its devoted fans. Accessed only by a boat trip across Fontana Lake or an eighteen mile hike, Hazel Creek and the ghost town of Proctor provide an outstanding natural experience and an opportunity for historic interpretation. Award winning cinematographer Ron Ruehl tags along, video camera in hand, on a regularly scheduled hike with well known naturalist/historian Lance Holland to bring you this unedited armchair journey into the vast north shore section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
