This is about the best map I have found of the area for recreation.
The only downside is that it doesn't have contour lines. You can view this map in its full size on the website, or you can buy it at most of the downtown Boone outdoor stores (Mast, Footsloggers, Magic Cycles, etc). I would pick up a Forest Service map for topo use.
Jim is also correct about the 2 harpers. They also have some nice waterfalls if you are in to that sort of thing.
