    This was really fun! There are some steep rocky climbs to get to the scenic views. Beautiful view from Lover’s Leap (minus the ill-placed solar farm across the river) and other rocks jutting out the mountainside. Watch out for falling acorns as they Plinko down the mountainside! One might get whacked in the head. Signs of bears taking food bags are posted, so there is a chance to see bears. When you park in the small parking lot by the river you can start the trail by the French Broad River and go counterclockwise. I recommend walking down the road a bit to the trailhead and go clockwise so you finish the loop along the river. The loop intersects with the larger A.T. But it is signed so you don’t end up on a 1,000 mile hike you didn’t intend.

    Was a nice hike after rafting 5 miles on the French Broad River. Great views but is a bit of a steep incline and decline to get to the views.
